tees and ojfficials of the Board, as directed in the by-laws. The 
results of this visitation, with the three exceptions noted below, 
are given on pp. 16 et seq. of this part of the report. (1) 
The investigation of associations which have applied for charters 
since the Acts of 1910, chapter 181, went into effect will be 
found in Part II. (pp. iii-vi), which is devoted exclusively to 
private charitable corporations. (2) The inspection of chari- 
table agencies provided for by Acts of 1909, chapter 379, is 
taken up in Part 11. (pp. vi-xv). (3) The results of alms- 
house inspection are given in full in Part III. The inspector 
has, during the official year, visited every almshouse once, 22 
have been visited twice, 6 three times, and 1 four times. In 
addition, the inspector has conferred with Overseers of the Poor 
of 33 different cities and towns in matters pertaining to alms- 
house conditions and management and other matters concern- 
ing the work of the Board. 

Members of the Board have, from time to time, made visits 
to almshouses; in most cases to consider the condition of the 
buildings and the welfare of the inmates. Great assistance in 
this friendly visiting has been rendered by the Board's corps of 
voluntary almshouse visitors. 

h. Publication, 

In addition to its full annual report, of which 2,000 copies 
are printed, there are issued under the law, for the use of the 
Board, 500 copies of so much of the report as relates to the city 
and town almshouses and statistics of paupers supported by 



8 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

cities and towns, and 1,000 copies of so much as relates to chari- 
table corporations. 

The chapter on poor relief, found in Part III. of the report, 
furnishes details respecting the poor supported or relieved at 
public expense during the year ending March 31, 1912, — their 
numbers, condition, treatment and cost — in tabulated form, 
which facilitates comparison. These facts are gathered from the 
annual returns of Overseers of the Poor of the several cities 
and towns; from the published town reports; from the records 
of the State institutions in which such relief has been rendered ; 
and from the files of this Board. 

Statistics of numbers refer strictly to the year ending March 
31, 1912. Figures relating to cost, however, contain an element 
of inaccuracy, since the financial returns of the cities and towns 
relate, in each instance, to the town's fiscal year, while the only 
figures available for State care relate to the State's fiscal year, 
closing !N'ovember 30, 1912. Figures of cost, therefore, are 
comparable only in the most general way. Greater accuracy 
in these cost tables awaits the adoption of a uniform town year, 
which shall be coincident with the State's fiscal year. In the 
meantime it is believed that data regarding expenses for the 
State and for local communities are worth setting together for 
general comparison in spite of overlapping periods. It is to be 
further noted that classification of a small group of State cases 
has not been accomplished. The tabulations show that within 
the year covered the whole number of cases receiving public 
support or relief, excluding vagrants, was 72,700, of whom 20,- 
163 were aided in institutions, State or local, and 52,537 were 
relieved outside, either in their own homes or in private families 
not their ovm. This latter class constitute the group usually in- 
dicated by the term " public outdoor relief." The total cared for 
in city and town almshouses numbers 12,261 ; in other institu- 
tions, 7,902 ; in their own homes, 50,318 ; in private families not 
their own, 2,219. The cities and towns aided a total of 55,231 
cases; the remainder, or 17,469 falling to the State. By the 
further classification it appears that of all cases aided, 36,319, 
or 49.9 per cent, were males and 36,381, or 50.0+ per cent., 
were females. The foreign born numbered 25,793, or 35.4 per 
cent., leaving 46,907, or 64.5 per cent, natives; 1.7 per cent.. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

or 1,261, were colored. In respect of age, at time of aid ren- 
dered, 31,359, or 43.1 per cent., were under twenty years; 
28,587, or 39.3 per cent., were between twenty and sixty; and 
11,110, or 15.2 per cent., were sixty or over. Those who were 
mentally impaired numbered 668, or .91+ per cent., classified 
as insane, 292, idiotic, 269, and epileptic, 107. 

Instances of tramps and vagrants aided were reported to the 
number of 15,676. Overseers, however, generally report only 
those cases coming under their especial care, who are aided out 
of the pauper funds, while to a large extent vagrants fall under 
police supervision. The true number of instances, therefore, 
is probably much above that given ; but it is to be remembered 
that a single night's lodging is an instance of aid, and the same 
wayfarer may be and undoubtedly is counted as a new instance 
every time he receives such aid. This means that the total num- 
ber of cases given actually represents a very much smaller num- 
ber of separate individuals. 

In this connection it is to be noted that though the total num- 
ber of poor persons aided or relieved is probably in excess of 
the number of separate individuals concerned, the returns for 
this year indicate more nearly than ever before the true number 
of individuals who have fallen into a condition of dependency. 
This arises from the fact that Overseers quite generally show 
an awakened interest in the keeping of accurate records and in 
dealing with the individual as one case so long as he continues 
to need relief, even though the aid be at somewhat extended 
intervals. 

The total expenses for public poor relief were $3,539,526.58. 
The State paid $740,259.40 of this sum; the remainder, or 
$2,799,267.18, fell to the cities and towns. The figures for 
cities and towns represent actual bills paid. For the State, it 
is found impossible to separate the actual expense for poor re- 
lief in institutions where all outlays are merged in the general 
maintenance, shared in by persons who do not fall within this 
class of public poor. The figures are therefore arrived at by 
taking from total expenditures that proportion which the num- 
ber relieved bears to the total inmate population of the institu- 
tion. This is a rough method, not admitting of complete ac- 
curacy, productive only of a fair average. 



10 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Of the local gross expense, $2,750,719.41 was for ordinary 
outlays, including e$255, 998.44 for administration. This item 
included, also, $1,212,286.18 for almshouse maintenance, $128,- 
714.19 for care in other institutions, $227,312.94, for aid in 
private families, and $926,407.66 for aid in the recipient's own 
home. From the total is to be subtracted $326,502.14, received 
on account of almshouse care, and all other receipts, amounting 
to $622,893.02, giving $2,127,826.39 as the net ordinary ex- 
penditure. Extraordinary outlays totalled $48,547.77. 

The poor persons aided by the State outside of institutions, 
or otherwise than as above noted, are included in the corre- 
sponding class of the town's poor for the reason that all public 
outdoor relief. State as well as local, is dispensed with rare 
exceptions through the medium of the local overseers of the 
poor. The total instances of aid under this classification 
amounted to 10,623. 

In Part 11. of the report are given abstracts of the reports 
of charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation, the reports being made annually to the Board, 
under the law. 

Of the 791 corporations whose returns were called for during 
the last official year, 48 failed to report; 20 of these delinquents 
have heretofore made the return. The remaining 743 corpora- 
tions filed reports, 65 of them for the first time. 

The Board hopes in time to secure returns from every char- 
ity which comes within the law, and thus make Part II. a com- 
plete directory of such agencies. 

JSTo attempt has been made to furnish totals of the statistics 
of these associations, since the basis of calculation adopted by 
them is not uniform, and a summary would therefore be mis- 
leading. To illustrate, many of the hospitals and dispensaries 
report the number of their out-patients by treatments and not 
by the individuals treated. 

The seriatim presentation of the separate reports serves well 
the primary purpose for which they are published, — that of 
acquainting the public with the work of the various incor- 
porated charitable agencies throughout the State. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

c. Legislation, 

The principal recommendations of tlie Board for legislative 
action are as follows : — 

1. Material increase in pathological work at the State In- 
firmary and at the several State sanatoria. 

2. The removal of the insane from the State Infirmary. 

3. Reduction of the age limit for the retention of children in 
almshouses from ^yq years to three. 

4. Provision for the dissolution of defunct charitable cor- 
porations. 

5. Improvement in the Board's facilities for transferring 
freight and passengers to and from Penikese Hospital. 

6. Authority to discharge patients from Penikese Hospital 
under certain conditions. 

7. Authority to republish a manual of the laws relating to 
the Board. 

1^0 action was taken by the last Legislature upon the measure 
to provide a pathological laboratory at the State Infirmary. 
The Board believes this an advisable step toward more con- 
sistent pathological work at this large institution. Such a course 
looks toward remedial relief in that it increases study of the 
causes of distress. 

The Board urges closer co-operation between the State hos- 
pitals and medical schools and societies for medical research. 
. ~Eo community can afford to carry on its hospital care of the 
sick and diseased without making that care tell for the future. 
The well-being of the community is best served by analysis of 
the causes of distress and disease, so that similar effects may be 
prevented in future. The State institutions of Massachusetts 
afford rich fields for the student of medical research. They 
should be thrown open to him on terms favorable enough to 
attract his service. The added cost would be small. The re- 
turns could not fail to be large. 

The removal of the insane patients from the State Infirmary 
is recommended in this as in other of the Board's reports in 
the belief that the real purposes of the institution are retarded 



12 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

by tlie retention and care of nearly a thousand inmates now 
classified for special hospital care in separate institutions. 

In view of the success met with by the State and local author- 
ities in placing children in homes, the necessity for retaining 
children in almshouses is rapidly disappearing. The Board 
recommends an amendatory statute providing that a child, 
though accompanied by its mother, may not be retained in an 
almshouse beyond the age of three, unless he falls within those 
special classes already recognized in the law as exceptional. 

The present laws require all charitable corporations to make 
an annual report to the State Board of Charity. Through the 
operation of this statute it is found that numerous charters are 
lying inactive, — legally alive but defunct in fact. It is con- 
trary to good government that such unused rights should remain 
outstanding. Such concerns should be wound up in the same 
manner as business corporations. The Board therefore recom- 
mends legislation abrogating such charters after failure for two 
years to render an account as required by the provisions of 
chapter 402 of the Acts of 1903. 

Yearly, since 1908, the Board has called attention in its 
reports to the need of a small channel extending from the wharf 
at Penikese Island. The purpose in this improvement is to 
remedy an unsafe passenger landing, and to render the deliver- 
ing of supplies less expensive. While the Board does not ask an 
appropriation for this purpose this year, it believes that the 
dredging of such a channel must be done in the near future. 
A more immediate necessity is that of some facility for the 
transfer of freight and passengers. The institution at present 
has a very serviceable catboat used for the lightering of passen- 
gers and some freight from the larger boats that have not enough 
water to reach the wharf. A forty-foot boat with auxiliary 
power, sufficient to carry ten to twelve tons of freight, would be 
able to navigate the bay in all ordinary weather, and would save 
a great deal of freight which is now paid to hired boats at $2 
a ton from 'New Bedford. The Board recommends an appro- 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

priation of $3,500, — the estimated cost of construction and 
fittings of a shoal-draft vessel of the above dimensions. 

Existing statutes are silent as to the authority of the Board 
to discharge patients from Penikese Hospital. An amendment 
is proposed granting such authority in cases where in the judg- 
ment of the Board the patient's health and the public welfare 
will not be endangered thereby. 

In requesting authority to reissue the manual of laws relat- 
ing to the State Board of Charity, revising the same to date, 
the Board seeks to meet not only its own needs but a constant 
demand from State and local authorities who desire such a com- 
pilation of laws for daily use. The manual in its present con- 
dition is out of print and no further copies are available. 

The following measures affecting the Board were passed by 
the Legislature of 1912 : — 

Acts of 1912, Chapter 187. 

An Act relative to supervision of probation work for way- 
ward AND DELINQUENT CHILDREN. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Section 1. Section fourteen of chapter four hundred and thir- 
teen of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and six is hereby 
amended by striking out the words " state board of charity ^', in the 
first line, and substituting the words : — commission on probation, 
— so as to read as follows : — Section IJf. The commission on pro- 
bation shall have authority to supervise the probation work for 
wayward and delinquent children^ and to make such inquiries as it 
considers necessary in regard to the same, and in its annual report 
may make such recommendations as it considers advisable for the 
improvement of methods of dealing with such children. [Approved 
March 2, 1912. 

Acts of 1912, Chapter 331. 

An Act relative to reimbursing cities and towns for aid 
rendered to persons without settlement. 

Be it enacted, etc., as folloius:

vised Laws, as amended by chapter three hundred and fifty-five of 
the acts of the year nineteen hundred and three, is hereby further 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

amended by inserting after the word " months ^\ in the ninth line, 
the words : — except as otherwise ordered by the state board of 
charity, — so as to read as follows: — Section 21. A city or town 
may furnish aid to poor persons found therein, having no lawful 
settlements within the commonwealth^, if the overseers of the poor 
consider it for the public interest; but, except in cases under the 
provisions of section fourteen of chapter eighty-five, not for a 
greater amount than two dollars a week for each family during the 
months of May to September, inclusive, or three dollars a week 
during the other months, except as otherwise ordered by the state 
board of charity; and the overseers shall in every case give imme- 
diate notice in writing to the state board of charity, which shall ex- 
amine the case and if it directs a discontinuance of such aid, shall 
remove such persons to the state hospital or to any state or place 
where they belong, if their necessities or the public interest requires 
it, and the superintendent of said hospital shall receive the persons 
removed thereto, as if they were sent there in accordance with the 
provisions of section seven of chapter eighty-five. A detailed state- 
ment of expenses so incurred shall be rendered, and after approval 
by the state board, such expenses shall be paid by the common- 
wealth. If any such person refuses to submit to removal the state 
board of charity, or any of its officers or agents, may apply to the 
district, municipal or police court of the district where such person 
resides, or to any trial justice, for an order directing that such re- 
moval be made. Upon such application the court or magistrate 
shall forthwith cause a summons to be served upon the person so 
refusing, and, if he be a minor, upon his parent or guardian, requir- 
ing the attendance of the person so summoned at a time and place 
appointed therein for hearing; and at such time and place shall 
hear and examine upon oath such person or persons, and shall hear 
such other evidence as may be material. If upon hearing it appears 
that the person sought to be removed is without a legal settlement 
in this commonwealth and is unable to support himself, and that 
his necessities or the public interests require his removal, the court 
or magistrate shall issue an order in writing, directed to a duly con- 
stituted officer or agent of the state board of charity, reciting that 
such person appears to be a state pauper, and that his necessities or 
the public interests require his removal, and commanding such 
officer or agent to remove him to the state hospital or to any other 
state institution designated by the state board of charity, and such 
officer or agent shall thereupon make the removal as ordered. After 
the removal is made such officer or agent shall file such order, with 
his return thereon, with the clerk of the court from which it was 
issued, or if issued by a trial justice it shall be filed with him. In 
every case where removal is ordered a detailed statement of the 
expense incurred by any city or town for the support of the person 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 15 

so removed while application for his removal was pending before the 
court, shall be rendered, and after approval by the state board shall 
be paid by the commonwealth. [Approved March 28, 1912. 



Acts of 1912, Chapter 530. 

An Act relative to the new hospital eoe dipsomaniacs in the 
towns of norfolk and walpole. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Section 1. The new hospital for dipsomaniacs in the towns of 
E'orf oik and Walpole, which was purchased in accordance with chap- 
ter six hundred and thirty-five of the acts of the year nineteen hun- 
dred and ten and has been maintained in accordance with chapter 
seven hundred and fifty-four of the acts of the year nineteen hundred 
and eleven, shall be Imown as the Norfolk state hospital. 

Section 2. All laws pertaining to the commitment, admittance, 
care, custody, treatment and discharge of inebriates and habitual 
users of drugs which now apply to the Foxborough state hospital and 
the patients therein shall also apply to the ITorfolk state hospital and 
the patients therein. 

Section 3. The !N"orfolk state hospital shall be administered by 
the trustees of the Foxborough state hospital, under the supervision 
of the state board of charity. Said trustees shall have the same 
powers, including the power of appointment of ofiicers and em- 
ployees, and the power to make by-laws and regulations, and shall 
be subject to the same duties, in regard to the Norfolk state hos- 
pital, which they now have or are now subject to in regard to the 
Foxborough state hospital. [Approved April 25, 1912. 



Acts of 1912, Chapter 562. 

An Act relative to the free exercise of religious beliefs by 
inmates of state institutions. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

The boards having charge of any prison or other place of confine- 
ment or public charitable or reformatory institution shall inclu.de 
as a separate item in their annual requests for appropriations such 
sums of money as they may think proper to carry out the provisions 
of section seventy-two of chapter two hundred and twenty-five of 
the Revised Laws, as amended by section one of chapter three hun- 
dred and sixty-three of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and 
four, of section seventy-three of said chapter two hundred and

THE STATE INSTITUTIONS. 

The State institutions under the supervision of the Board 
are : the State Infirmary^ at Tewksburj ; the State Farm, at 
Bridgewater; the Norfolk State Hospital; the Lyman School 
for Boys, at Westborough; the Industrial School for Boys, at 
Shirley; the State Industrial School for Girls, at Lancaster; 
the Massachusetts Hospital School, at Canton ; the Xorth Read- 
ing State Sanatorium; the Rutland State Sanatorium; the Lake- 
ville State Sanatorium; and the Westfield State Sanatorium. 

The supervisory powers of the Board over these institutions 
extend to the right of investigation and recommendation as to 
any matters relating to the institutions, but the administration 
of each is vested in a separate Board of Trustees. 

The State Infirmary and the State Farm are controlled by 
one Board of Trustees. Its membership is as follows : John B. 
Tivnan, Salem, Chairman; Helen R. Smith, l^ewton; Payson 
W. Lyman, Fall River; Leonard Huntress, Lowell; Galen L. 
Stone, Brookline; John W. Coughlin, Fall River; ^Nellie E. 
Talbot, Brookline. 

The ]^orfolk State Hospital for the care and treatment of 
inebriates has come under the Board's supervision within the 
year. It is administered by the Board of Trustees of the Fox- 
borough State Hospital, composed as follows : Robert A. Woods, 
Boston, Chairman; W. Rodman Peabody, Cambridge; Philip 
R. Allen, Walpole; Timothy J. Foley, Worcester; Frank L. 
Locke, Maiden ; Edwin Mulready, Rockland. 

The Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives administer the 
four sanatoria, but have no powers over the tuberculosis wards 
of the State Infirmary. The Board is constituted as follows: 
Arthur T. Cabot,"* Boston, Chairman; Albert C. Getchell, 
Worcester; Arthur Drinkwater, Cambridge; Sylvia B. Knowl- 
ton, Xewton; Daniel L. Prendergast, Brookline; Simon Swig, 
Taunton ; George A. Dunn, Gardner. 

The three training or industrial schools fall under the control 
of the Trustees of the Massachusetts Training Schools. The

Board is as follows: Carl Dreyfus, Boston, Chairman; James 
J. Sheehan, Peabody ; Mary Josephine Bleakie, Brookline ; 
Matthew Luce, Cohasset ; John F. Scully, Arlington ; Elizabeth 
G. Evans, Boston; Charles M. Davenport, Boston; James W. 
McDonald, Marlborough; Lewis M. Palmer, South Framing- 
ham. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is administered by the 
following Board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, M.D., Bos- 
ton, Chairman; Leonard W. Ross, Canton, Secretary; Walter C. 
Baylies, Taunton ; William F. Fitzgerald, Brookline ; Alfred S. 
Pinkerton, Worcester. 

In addition to the eleven State institutions which the Board 
supervises, is Penikese Hospital, the Massachusetts hospital for 
the care and treatment of persons afflicted with leprosy. This 
institution is administered directly by the State Board of Char- 
ity. For the sake of uniformity and comparison, all twelve 
institutions are grouped together in this report. 

^N^UMBEES. 

The total number of cases under care in these institutions 
during the year was 19,688. Of the total number, 15,006 were 
males and 4,682 were females. Ten thousand two hundred and 
twenty-three were received for hospital treatment; 1,989 were 
juvenile delinquents; 6,110 were adult offenders, mostly chronic 
drunkards; and 1,366 were indigent persons, having no legal 
settlement and not included in the above classifications. Of the 
hospital cases, 3,260 were suffering from pulmonary tubercu- 
losis; 1,Y09 were insane. 

Capacity. 
Five institutions, namely, the Lyman School, the In- 
dustrial School for Girls, and the sanatoria at l^orth 
Reading, Lakeville and Westfield, showed an excess in 
daily average attendance over normal capacity. Of the remain- 
ing six, the Industrial School for Boys and the Rutland State 
Sanatorium are both practically full, the attendance at times 
exceeding proper facilities for care and treatment. The Indus- 
trial School for Boys is in process of increasing its normal 
capacity to meet the pressure of commitments. Of the institu- 



18 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



tions showing an excess, the three sanatoria have long waiting 
lists, and are under constant pressure from new cases. The use 
of tents accounts for the large numbers cared for in excess of 
permanent capacity. All three institutions ask appropriations 
this year in order to increase facilities. Lyman School shows 
a marked increase in numbers during the year. Continued in- 
crease will necessitate additional construction at an early date. 
Conditions at the Industrial School for Girls have not improved. 
The overcrowding is serious. Last year it was hoped that some 
of the feeble-minded might be cared for elsewhere. This fail- 
ing, the school for the next year asks for a new cottage to house 
30 inmates. Crowding at the State Infirmary, serious at sea- 
sons of the year, cannot be permanently relieved until some 
provision is made elsewhere for the 800 insane inmates, and 
until the State's facilities for custodial care of the feeble- 
minded can be augmented to take in the numerous feeble- 
minded children now crowding the children's quarters. The 
accompanying tabulation indicates the fluctuations of daily 
attendance above and below the normal capacity for inmates 
for each institution.

Cost of Maintenance. 
The combined appropriations for maintenance were $1,555,- 
19Y.'22. The total expenditures on the same acconnt were 
$1,571,331.05, creating a net deficit of $16,133.83. Of the 
sum expended, $548,038.49 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $1,023,292.56. For the coming year the 
respective Boards of Trustees submit estimates for maintenance 
appropriations, as shown in Table I., all of which are approved 
by this Board. To the tabulation is added for better compari- 
son the Board's own estimate for Penikese Hospital. Estimates 
for special purposes will be considered later in this report under 
each of the institutions separately.

Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 21 

Comparative View of Movement of Population and of 

Expenditures. 
The movement of population in the twelve institutions men- 
tioned in the foregoing pages is shown in brief but comparative 
form in Table II. Inmates are classified bj sex, while the 
daily average attendance appears in a column adjoining the 
average number of officers and employees. The average num- 
ber of persons employed, shown in this table, is obtained from 
an exact analysis of the pay rolls reducing all employment to 
a basis of days. Table III. affords a comparative view of ex- 
penditures at all the institutions, classified as ^^ current " and 
^' extraordinary." Tables II. and III. are drawn in accordance 
with the statistical form adopted by the !N^ational Conference 
of Charities and Correction, May 15, 1906.

Value per unit of capacity, $726.57. Provides almshouse and 
hospital care for indigent persons not chargeable for support to 
any city or town. During the year 6,955 persons have been 
under care, 114 less than in 1911, and 207 less than in 1910. 
Omitting the cases of readmission during the period, these 6,955 
cases represented 4,414 separate individuals. The largest daily 
census was 2,573, the smallest, 2,074; the daily average being 
2,283.44. For the preceding year the corresponding figures 
were 2,623 and 1,955, with a daily average of 2,201. Normal 
capacity of institution, 2,301. 

Of the whole number cared for, 6,476, or 93 per cent., were 
treated as hospital patients. In this number were 1,010 cases 
of tuberculosis (918 of which were cases of phthisis), 4 of 
diphtheria, 1 of typhoid fever, 4 of scarlet fever, 64 of whoop- 
ing cough, 4 of measles, 44 of chicken pox. Of the 589 deaths, 
213 were from tuberculosis. Seven hundred and fifty-four 
surgical operations were performed. Of the 876 cases of pul- 
monary tuberculosis in the consumptive ward, 744 were males, 
102 females. Of this number, 13 were discharged as disease

arrested, 6 apparently cured, 306 relieved, 189 died, 104 not 
relieved. 

Of the 175 births at this institution during the year, 80 were 
males and 95 were females. Of this number there were 166 
living births, namely, 73 males and 93 females. Among the 
mothers of these children, 81 were born in the United States, 
20 in Ireland, 5 in England, 36 in the British Provinces; 33 
were foreign bom. Eight hundred and sixty of the whole num- 
ber under care were insane. 

Of the 4,629 new admissions, 2,760, or 59.6 per cent, were 
from Boston. Those native in Massachusetts numbered 1,060, 
or 20.7 per cent. Two thousand eight hundred and twenty-nine 
were foreign born, representing 43 different countries. Nine 
hundred and forty-six, or 20.4 per cent., were under twenty-one 
years of age. 

With an appropriation of $418,000, a total of $422,681.49 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution, creating 
a deficit of $4,681.49. Of the amount expended, $133,625.94 
was for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, $289,- 
055.55. Weekly per capita cost of maintenance computed on 
expenses less sales and refunds from maintenance, $3.54. Total 
receipts from all sources other than the State treasury, $30,- 
359.62. !N'et cost of maintenance to the Commonwealth, $392,- 
321.87. Ratio of daily average number of persons employed 
to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 7. For detailed 
analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pp. 65-72. 

The chief improvements during the year have been the en- 
largement of the chapel and the construction of a special ward 
for women. The chapel improvement very nearly doubles the 
seating capacity, at the same time contributing to the appear- 
ance of the building and bettering the facilities for conducting 
services. The women's ward will be ready for occupancy in a 
short time. It will house 32 women. The total expended from 
appropriations for special purposes was $30,538.74. 

The new home for male employees, authorized in 1911, has 
just been begun, and will not be ready for occupancy until well 
into the current year. 

For the better effecting of the purpose for which this insti- 
tution exists, the Board recommends that the insane patients. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 27 

numbering almost 1,000, be transferred to institutions existing 
exclusively for the care of the insane. iN'unibers are pressing 
harder each yea,r upon the capacity of the infirmary. It has 
already, in the opinion of this Board, reached its maximum of 
efficiency in respect of size. Its purpose is the housing and re- 
lief of the indigent poor who have no settlement. The insane 
are a class singled out for special care, regardless of settlement. 
These cases, numbering about one-third of the daily population 
of the institution, are well cared for here, but their place is 
sorely needed for more legitimate purposes. 

The presence of so many feeble-minded minors at this hos- 
pital is another evidence of the urgent need of additional facili- 
ties for the care of this class. These cases are at the infirmary 
because there is nowhere else to place them, and they are a 
menace when at large in the community. The thousand or 
more cases that represent the waiting-lists at our two schools for 
the feeble-minded are ample proof that in failing to make ex- 
tensive provision for their care this State is not only leaving 
its duty undone but is clogging its present machinery as a direct 
result of this failure. The State Infirmary is the best example 
of this clogging process. 

Removal and custodial care of the feeble-minded now at the 
infirmary would materially reduce the number of children 
there. This number is excessive and tends to increase at an 
alarming rate. It is due to the skill and efficiency of the Super- 
intendent and staff that the problem of the children has been 
thus far tolerable. 

The Trustees request special appropriations for three much 
needed improvements, as follows : — 

Additions and alterations to administration building . $28,600 00 

For a laboratory building 22,000 00 

Water supply : — 

Additional 4-inch pipe line from pumping station . 1,604 00 

Hot-water circulating system . . . . . 15,672 00 

Additional 6-inch wells . ... . . 321 00

Water tower 14,600 00 

Total $83,340 31

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



Of these requests the first two are renewals of estimates made 
last year. In both cases the year's delay in authorizing prog- 
ress has added to the urgency of the need. The extension to 
the administration building seeks to relieve office congestion 
which has been brought about by growth of the institution to 
more than double the size intended to be accommodated by the 
existing facilities. 

Pathological research is essential in the modern treatment of 
disease. All the more is this true of a State hospital, where the 
aim must be not merely the relief of individuals who are sick, 
but the purpose must look as well to the future safeguarding of 
the community through preventive measures. The State In- 
firmary greatly needs a pathological laboratory. Such facilities 
would attract students of research. The Board believes that our 
hospitals should be stations for research, open to specialists from 
whose studies there is hope of adding to the fund of scientific 
knowledge that can be brought to bear upon the State's problems.

The total number of persons leaving the institution during 
the year, whether by death, discharge, or release on parole, was 
5,248. The deaths numbered 120. 

Out of an appropriation of $343,662.09, a total of $343,- 
660.45 was expended for the maintenance of this institution. A 
deficit of the preceding year accounts for $662.09 of this total. 
Of the amount expended, $102,976.96 was for salaries, wages, 
and labor; all other expenses, $240,683.49. Weekly per capita 
cost of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and re- 
funds from maintenance, $2,463. Total receipts from all 
sources other than the State treasury, $21,187.59. "Net cost of 
maintenance to the Commonwealth, $322,472.86. Ratio of 
daily number of persons employed to daily average number of 
inmates, 1 to 14. For detailed analysis of receipts and expendi- 
tures, see. pp. 65-72. 

Appropriations of $11,500 for improvements and the enlarge- 
ment of the water supply, and $12,000 for additional chapel 
accommodations were granted in 1912. Under these authoriza- 
tions additonal filter beds have been constructed, needed pump-

ing macliinery has been installed, and successful exploration 
has been made for a driven well supply for domestic use. 
Analysis shows this water to be of excellent quality. The chapel 
addition is in process, but not yet completed. It will double 
the seating capacity. The total expended out of appropriations 
for special purposes was $28,654.17. 

The process of reclaiming waste land is used effectively to 
furnish wholesome outdoor labor for prisoners. The gaining 
of many acres yearly for the farm account results in cumula- 
tive returns in farm products. This year the yield has been 
heavy and the crops of the best quality. Work on the farm, to- 
gether with the gradually expanding prison industries, furnishes 
ample occupation for inmates, visibly bettering their condition 
of health during sentence. 

The Trustees make the following estimates for special pur- 
poses, all of which are approved by this Board: — 

1. Water supply from driven wells $10,000 00 

2. Additional sewage filtration beds 4,000 00 

3. Purchase of land 5,000 00 

4. Recording instruments and machinery for engineer's 

department 3,000 00

Provides care and treatment for inebriates and users of drugs 
in cases not deemed incurable, also detention colony for non-

The roxborough State Hospital has for years served as an 
experiment station for the study of methods of treating drunk- 
ards and drug users who are not incurable. As a result of this 
experiment the Trustees of that institution recommended the 
establishment of a new State institution which should provide 
hospital treatment for hopeful cases, both men and women, with 
a detention colony for non-criminal but chronic drunkards.^ 

» See special report of the trustees, 1910, House Document 1390. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 31 

Under legislative authority the Trustees purchased a tract of 
laud which co'mprises about 1,000 acres of tillage and woodland 
lying in the towns of N'orfolk and Walpole, a situation ad- 
mirably adapted to the threefold purpose of the institution. 
The topography is peculiarly suited to the installation and main- 
tenance of power plant, water supply, and sewage disposal. The 
variety in soil affords large opportunity for wholesome outdoor 
occupation for patients. 

By chapter 530 of the Acts of 1912 this tract with its be- 
ginning of two remodelled farmhouses was set apart as the 
ITorfolk State Hospital, under the administration of the Eox- 
borough trustees and the supervision of the State Board of 
Charity. 

By chapter 124 of the Acts of the same year the Trustees were 
authorized to expend $115,000 for the construction of an ad- 
ministration building, a hospital, a light and power plant, sewer 
and water connections, six cottages, and a laundry. Building 
operations are now in progress, and it is contemplated that they 
will be completed by the autumn of the present year, at which 
time all the patients at the Foxborough State Hospital, except 
the insane, will be transferred, leaving that institution for the 
care of insane persons only. 

The founding of this institution is of far-reaching importance 
to the Commonwealth, since it supplies a step in the treatment 
of drunkards for the lack of which our existing facilities for 
meeting this problem have been taxed and strained by inap- 
propriate uses. With the new hospital in operation the State's 
scheme for dealing with drunkards may be outlined as fol- 
lows : — 

Release for first offenders. 

Probation for the case that is not confirmed but for whom arrest 
alone is not a deterrent. 

Hospital care for the advanced case that is still curable, to be 
provided at iN'orfolk State Hospital after voluntary residence or 
commitment. 

Detention colony for the confirmed but noncriminal cases, to be 
provided at Norfolk State Hospital. 

Prison custody for the chronic cases who are also vicious or crim- 
inal, — the State Farm. 



32 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The singling out of the hopeful case for hospital treatment 
takes such cases out of vicious associations and seeks to restore 
them to competency as citizens. The new institution cannot 
be regarded as an experiment. The necessity of such provision 
is amply demonstrated in this and many other communities. 
It is an established fact and should be forwarded to completion 
in plant and equipment without delay. 

During the year an average of 42 patients have been in resi- 
dence at the new quarters engaged in clearing land and per- 
forming various tasks in connection with preparation for actual 
building. Inasmuch, however, as a whole year has not been 
completed, and the hospital is not yet open to commitments, the 
figures for this year are not entered throughout in the compara- 
tive tables relating to receipts and expenses of institutions. Out 
of an appropriation of $26,700 for the maintenance of this in- 
stitution a total of $26,700 has been expended. Of this sum, 
$6,407.32 was for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, 
$20,292.68. The total expended out of appropriations for 
special purposes was $3,763.86. 

The Trustees make the following estimates for special pur- 
poses, all of which are approved by this Board : — 

1. For two cottages and equipment $16,000 00 

2. For farm buildings and equipment .... 18,000 00 

3. For building and equipping a hospital .... 20,000 00 

4. For an industrial building and equipment . . . 18,000 00 

5. For a service building and equipment . . i . 29,000 00 

6. For a spur track 2,000 00 

7. For a storage water tank and- water and sewer con- 

nections 4,000 00 



Total $107,000 00 

The two cottages would be of brick located immediately be- 
hind the hospital building now in course of erection. They 
would be used exclusively by hospital patients. Each would 
accommodate 25 inmates. 

The farm buildings would comprise a horse barn, a cow barn, 
hay and grain storage, root cellar, and storage room for vehicles 
and machinery. They would be located in the farming district 
near what will eventually form the custodial group of cottages. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 33 

The hospital building named in item 3 would form an emer- 
gency hospital and reception ward for drug cases. The esti- 
mate includes operating room and equipment with necessary 
therapeutic and laboratory apparatus. 

The industrial building would consist of a series of shop 
buildings near the administration group so arranged as to secure 
maximum economy and efficiency in operation. These shops 
would provide industrial training for patients. 

The estimate for a service building includes storerooms, re- 
frigerators, refrigerating and ice-making machinery, bakery, 
and a basement for storage purposes. 

The spur track would include the beginning of a coal trestle. 

The estimate for water supply contemplates a storage tank 
back of the administration and hospital group, and the extension 
of water and sewerage systems to new buildings. 

THE STATE TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough, the Industrial 
School for Boys at Shirley, and the Industrial School for Girls 
at Lancaster are the three industrial schools provided for by 
the State for juvenile delinquents. They are administered by 
a single Board of Trustees known as the Trustees of the Massa- 
chusetts Training Schools, with offices at 198 Dartmouth Street, 
Boston. 

Boys under fifteen years of age may be committed to the 
Lyman School, and under eighteen years of age to the school 
at Shirley. Girls under seventeen go to the institution at Lan- 
caster. All persons committed remain under the control of the 
Trustees during minority. For greater efficiency in adminis- 
tration, the Lyman School cares for boys under fifteen, while 
those over that age go to Shirley. 

The total number of persons under care in these three insti- 
tutions during the year was 1,990. Of these, 931 were boys 
under fifteen, all at Lyman School, 512 were boys over fifteen, 
at Shirley, and 547 were girls, cared for at Lancaster. 

In the three schools there were, at the beginning of the year, 
793 inmates, namely, 496 boys and 297 girls. Eleven hundred 
and ninety-six were received during the year, and 1,122 went

out either by discharge or upon parole, leaving 867 on Novem- 
ber 30, 1912, namely, 568 boys and 299 girls. 

It is of interest in the year's record of these schools that the 
numbers are rapidly increasing. This has not caused serious 
overcrov^ding at Lyman and Shirley, but the school at Lancaster 
is in great need of further facilities both for better classification 
and for the housing of new cases. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the three 
schools totaled $248,729.13. On this account, $257,315.95 was 
expended, the deficit of $8,587.92 occurring at Lyman School. 
Subtracting all receipts from sources other than the State treas- 
ury, the net cost of maintenance to the Commonwealth was 
$256,734.57. Details of administration and cost are considered 
under each school separately, as follows : —

boys under fifteen years of age. Cottage plan. 

During the year 931 cases have been under care, representing 
742 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 130 
more than in 1911 and 120 more than in 1910. The number in 
the school at the beginning of the year was 335; admissions 
numbered, 596; discharges, 546; remainder at the close of the 
year, 385. The largest daily census was 390 ; the smallest, 330 ; 
daily average, 361.62. The daily average exceeds last year's 
average by 37. 

The list of causes of admission in the 596 cases received 
during the year was as follows: absconders returned, 98; as- 
sault, 3 ; breaking and entering, 25 ; delinquent child, 78 ; dis-

Board of Charity, 3 ; stubbornness, 25 ; vagrancy, 2. Two hun- 
dred and twenty-two of the foregoing cases were committed by 
the courts. Of this number, 117 had been arrested before and 
55 had been inmates of other institutions. Seventeen per cent. 
were of American parentage, 44 per cent, of foreign parentage, 
and 10 per cent, unknown. Twenty-five of these boys were 
foreign born, 196 were born in the United States. The nativity 
of one was unascertained. 

This institution is a juvenile reform school for the reception 
of delinquents under the age of fifteen. There are 12 cottages, 
housing about 30 boys each, in the care of a master and matron. 
The boys sleep and take their meals in the cottage, although the 
food is prepared in the central kitchen. Each cottage is sup- 
plied with bathing facilities, recreation and reading rooms. 
The other buildings on the grounds are an administration build- 
ing, a storehouse, power station and shop building, hospital, 
greenhouse and farm buildings, and a large, central school. In 
the latter there is, in addition to the classrooms, a large meeting 
hall, a place for religious services and other exercises, a print- 
ing shop, and swimming pool. 

The land comprised in the school property covers about 300 
acres. In addition, there is a farmhouse about seven miles from 
the school proper in the town of Berlin, where the new boys 
under thirteen are sent for training. There are about 90 acres 
of land attached to the Berlin farm. 

At the school proper the boys' daily routine consists of at- 
tendance at school, household duties, working at trades or on 
the farm, and recreation. The endeavor is to distribute these 
activities in such maaner as to give the boy a well-balanced 
program. Instruction is given in carpentering, plumbing, 
masonry, printing, dairying, and electrical work. This prac- 
tical training is accompanied by academic instruction pertinent 
to the different branches. 

The segregation of those boys in the school who are not 
readily amenable to discipline into a disciplinary squad living 
apart in a special cottage has worked well during the year, and 
as a result corporal punishments have materially decreased. 
There have been some modifications in the system as first 



36 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

adopted, and doubtless it is too early to say that this is the last 
word on this subject, but so far it has worked well and appears 
to justify the additional cost which it necessitates. 

When a boy is received in the school he is required to earn, 
by conduct and excellence in school or trades, 5,000 credits. 
When these are earned the boy may be paroled either to his 
home, if suitable, or to some selected place. If he is too young 
to go to work and his home is unfit, a boarding-place is found 
for him, and he is supported by the funds of the school until 
he is of sufiicient age to be put at service. While it is possible 
to earn the credits in something less than a year, the average 
time is something more than a year and a half. 

The school is conducted without prison bounds, and therefore 
runaways are comparatively frequent, although in most in- 
stances the boys are found and returned. However annoying 
and expensive in money these elopements are, an open school is 
much to be preferred to an institution surrounded with high 
walls and protected by guards. The boy who goes through 
Lyman School need not, and it is believed does not, feel that 
he is a graduate of a prison, but rather that he has attended a 
school where his capacities have been developed and his char- 
acter formed. 

In the care of the smaller boys at Berlin there is nothing 
to suggest that the boys are under restraint. There is plenty 
of wholesome boyish play, and the schoolroom atmosphere is 
quite as free and unconstrained as in any outside school. Very 
often these younger boys go back to their homes without any 
detention at the 'main school beyond that required for physical 
examination. 

When a boy has made his credits, his case comes up for con- 
sideration before the parole officers and a committee of the 
Board of Trustees. If conditions warrant it the boy is returned 
to his home ; if not, a place is found for him, either at work or 
at board, according to the circumstances. He then comes under 
the immediate charge of one of the parole officers whose duty 
it is to guide and assist the boy that he may become a self- 
respecting citizen when he reaches his majority and is auto- 
matically discharged from the rolls of the school. If, however. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 37 

the boy becomes troublesome and falls into evil ways, the parole 
officer must find him and return him to the school, where the 
process of upbuilding must be repeated. Last year 164 of the 
382 boys paroled from the school were placed in their own 
homes; 59 were boarded in private families and sent to school 
at public expense ; 159 were placed at wages in homes other than 
their own. 

The value of the parole system is suggested by the fact that 
out of 1,383 boys on parole from this school at one time during 
the past year, 45 were returned because of inability to keep out 
of trouble. This is a little over 3 per cent, of the total number. 

In spite of the fact that the greater number of boys received 
at the school have had a variety of physical defects, and that 
the larger proportion of them were greatly below the average 
of their age in weight, the health of the institution has been 
excellent. There have been no epidemics and few serious ill- 
nesses in the hospital and no deaths. This condition is probably 
accounted for by the regular living, the proper combination of 
work and recreation, outdoor life, and wholesome diet resulting 
in a life far different from that of the boys' previous experience. 

During the year a change has been made in the manner of 
church attendance and religious instruction. Heretofore the 
boys of various denominations have gone to the town for religious 
worship. This plan has been superseded by the method of hav- 
ing services for the various denominations each Sunday in the 
school hall. Religious instruction has been given to the boys 
during the week by clergymen and others. 

With an appropriation of $108,964.13, a total of $117,- 
652.05 was expended for the maintenance of this institution, 
creating a deficit of $8,587.92. Of the amount expended $45,- 
513.51 was for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, 
$72,038.54. Weekly per capita cost of maintenance computed 
on expenses less sales and refunds from maintenance, $6,222. 
Total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury, 
$303.17. 'Net cost of maintenance to the Commonwealth, 
$117,248.88. Ratio of daily average number of persons em- 
ployed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 4.76. Eor

There liave been no large additions to the plant during the 
past year. Oak cottage has been connected with the central 
heating system and a boiler has been put into Boulder cottage. 
A new hennery has been built and a new piggery is under con- 
struction. A refrigerating plant has been built adjoining the 
storeroom. A piece of land has been acquired for a railroad 
siding and has been cleared and fenced in and is now being 
graded. The total expended out of appropriations for special 
purposes was $4,133.46. 

The special improvements needed are set out in the following 
estimates of the Trustees, which are approved by this Board : — 

1. Exploration for water supply $700 00 

2. Ice house , . 1,000 00 

3. Shoe machinery equipment . . . . . . 1,000 00 

$2,700 00 

Item one would provide the means for seeking out a supply 
of good water which in all probability may be had upon the 
institution grounds. All water is at present purchased and 
supplied to the various departments by means of a force pump 
belonging to the institution. Ownership of the supply would 
result in a considerable saving annually. 

The second estimate is likewise on the score of economy. Ice 
at present averages $720 annually in cost. It is estimated that 
the same amount can be har^^ested by the institution at a cost 
which, including the $1,000 for storehouse, would net a saving 
within a very short time. 

The third item adds to the industrial equipment of the school, 
at the same time supplying much needed machinery for the 
making of shoes used by the inmates.

Provides custodial care and industrial training for boys over 
fifteen and under twenty-one years of age. Only boys under 
eighteen may be admitted. 

During the year 512 cases have been cared for, representing 
497 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 242 
more than in the preceding year. The number in the school at 
the beginning of the year was 161. Admissions numbered 351 ; 
discharges, 329 ; remainder at the close of the year, 183. The 
largest daily census was 188 ; the smallest, 161 ; daily average, 
177.71. 

The list of causes of admission in the 351 cases received 
during the year was as follows: absconders returned, 55; as- 
sault, 2 ; assault and battery, 3 ; breaking and entering, 26 ; 
breaking and entering and larceny, 21 ; burning a dwelling, 1 ; 
delinquent child, 19 ; disturbing the peace, 1 ; drunkenness, 4 ; 
failure to report while on probation, 1 ; gaming in a public place, 
1 ; idle and disorderly, 2 ; larceny, 57 ; receiving stolen goods, 
2 ; returned after leave of absence, 45 ; returned from place or 
parole, 47 ; returned or transferred from institutions, penal, 
13 ; returned or transferred from institutions, not penal, 21 ; 
stubborn child, 31 ; vagrancy, 5. 

One hundred and seventy-seven of the foregoing cases were 
committed by the courts. Of the boys thus committed, 110 had 
been arrested before and 37 had been inmates of other institu- 
tions. Twenty-five, or 14 per cent., were foreign born. Of the 
remaining 86 per cent, born in the United States, 135, or 75.7 
per cent., were natives of Massachusetts. The average popula- 
tion of 177.7 exceeds the average of the preceding year by 62 +. 

Of the 329 boys discharged or released during the year, 2 
died; 114 were placed at occupations, on parole; 3 became of 
age and were therefore discharged ; 17 were sent to other insti- 
tutions for custodial care; and 23 went to other institutions, 
not penal. 

This institution was established by chapter 639 of the Acts 
of 1908 as a school for the industrial training and for the in- 
struction and reformatory treatment of boys not less than fifteen 
nor more than eighteen years of age, who have been convicted 
of any offence punishable by imprisonment other than imprison- 



40 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

ment for life. The school was formally opened on Julv 31, 
1909. 

The site of the school is the old Shaker village at Shirley 
with a tract, now the property of the institution, consisting of 
900 acres of pasture, forest, orchard, and tillage land. There 
are six cottages, a central kitchen, a laundry, administration, 
farm, and shop buildings. 

Before the establishment of this school there was no place to 
which delinquent boys between the ages of fifteen and eighteen 
years could be committed, except to the jails or to the Reforma- 
tory at Concord. The result was that the cases of boys who 
were in need of some form of disciplinary treatment were dis- 
posed of in other ways because of the objection on the part of 
courts to mingling boys of this age with the older and more ex- 
perienced offenders found in the institutions for criminals. 
This treatment in some cases encouraged youthful oifenders in 
their offences against society. The establishment at Shirley 
was designed to remedy this condition. 

In pursuance of the declaration of the statute requiring in- 
dustrial training, development of the school along industrial 
lines has been constantly followed until at present there are 18 
trades or parts of trades taught in the school. These trades are 
baking, harboring, blacksmithing, cabinet making, carpentry, 
cobbling, cooking, nursing, laundering, masonry, plumbing, 
painting, tailoring, dairying, gardening, poultry raising, gen- 
eral farming, and teaming. As pointed out in previous reports, 
many of the boys have been able to follow their trades by helping 
in the construction and remodelling of the school buildings ; 
others have made the furniture in use at the school, while still 
others make the clothing. It is not attempted nor expected 
that the school shall turn out finished tradesmen in the various 
branches. The purpose is rather to give the boy so good a start 
in the trade selected for him, after conference with his parents 
and after a study of the individual, that he will be able upon 
leaving the school to find employment at wages that will make 
him independent and enable him to follow his occupation until 
he has mastered it and become a journeyman. 

Obviously, to make this policy effective it is necessary to find 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 41 

employment for the boy -upon his parole in the same trade in 
which he has received instruction at the school. This presents 
additional problems to the parole officer, as frequently the tem- 
porary advantage to the boy lies in finding other employment 
which offers more liberal remuneration. Sometimes, also, the 
enforcement of this policy operates against the return of the 
boy to his own family, where work at the trade which he is learn- 
ing is impossible to secure. The whole problem of this school, 
however, is in its experimental stage, and it is expected that 
time and experience will solve these incidental matters. 

This institution, like the other schools for juveniles in the 
Commonwealth, is an open school, as unlike as possible in its 
physical surroundings and administration to the ordinary en- 
closed reformatory. The method of release is like that at the 
Lyman School, except that the boy here must earn 9,000 credits. 
Release may be earned by the average boy in fifteen months, 
and there is a question here, also, whetber, considering the in- 
dustrial feature of the school, this average period is long enough 
to make the boy sufficiently valuable industrially upon parole. 

There is a disciplinary cottage to which all newly comimitted 
boys are first sent for a period to be studied and classified. This 
cottage is used also for boys who prove refractory. The dis- 
cipline here is more rigid than that of the other houses, and the 
boys work under closer supervision until their behavior war- 
rants their return to ordinary school life. It is the policy of 
the school to encourage self-reliance and self-respect, and to give 
the boys as nearly as possible that degree of personal freedom 
and responsibility that will be theirs when released from the 
school. 

The regular life and diversity of occupation with outdoor 
work and recreation have contributed to make for sturdy health 
on the part of the boys. The year has been without epidemics 
of disease. The small hospital has treated mainly such minor 
accidents as are incident to the various trades and to boy life. 

Out of an appropriation of $63,065, a total of $63,064 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $25,100.38 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $37,963.62. Weekly per capita cost

tenance to the Commonwealth, $62,873.80. Ratio of daily 
average number of persons employed to daily average number 
of inmates, 1 to 4.5. For detailed analysis of receipts and ex- 
penditures, see pp. 65-72. 

Under the supervision of the instructors of the various trades 
the boys have done all the construction work of the year, which 
comprised new sidewalks, ice house, piggery, cow barn, and 
workshop. The most notable example of the boys' labor is the 
new shop building of reinforced concrete, which is to shelter 
the carpentry and wood work and the machine shop, if the latter 
is decided upon, on the main floor, and a large blacksmith shop 
in the basement. The total expended out of appropriations for 
special purposes was $34,167.71. 

Increases and additions to plant and equipment now needed 
are explained in the following estimates which are approved by 
this Board : — 

1. Two cottages, each to house 30 boys, with heating ap- 

paratus and furnishmgs for same .... $42,400 00 

2. Moving and remodelUng barn 6,500 00 

3. Explorations for water supply 700 00 

4. General improvements, including moving and remodel- 

ling cottage and extending sewerage system . . 5,650 00 

Item one is designed to meet the urgent demand for increased 
normal capacity. So pressing are the demands on the school 
that if accommodations could be supplied two additional cot- 
tages could be immediately filled with boys now before the 
various courts. The second item would supply a corresponding 
addition to farm equipment, at the same time removing a con- 
siderable fire risk. Item three would provide an advisable 
search for water supply. This institution should own and con- 
trol its own water supply, on the score of economy and of better 
fire protection as well. The last item results largely from the 
fact that many of the institution buildings are old and not origi- 
nally suited to present uses. The percentage of repairs is there- 
fore relatively large.

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
girls under twenty-one years of age. Only girls under seventeen 
may be sommitted. 

During the year 547 cases have been under care, representing 
503 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 16 
more than in 1911 and 52 more than in 1910. The number in 
the school at the beginning of the year was 297 ; admissions 
during the year, 250; discharged, including all persons going 
out of the school, 248 ; remaining I^ovember 30, 1912, 299. The 
largest daily census was 325 ; smallest, 289 ; daily average, 304. 

The list of causes of admission in the 250 cases received 
during the year was as follows: absconders returned, 4; delin- 
quency, 17 ; fornication, 4 ; idle and disorderly, 10 ; idle, va- 
grant and vicious, 1 ; juvenile offender, 1 ; larceny, 10 ; lewd and

ness, 39 ; vagrancy, 1 ; wayward and delinquent, 2 ; to visit the 
school, 30; transferred from other institutions, not penal, 19. 
One hundred and six of the foregoing cases were committed by 
the courts. Of the number thus committed, 33 had been in 
court before, 29 of whom were on probation from court at the 
time. Twelve, or 11.3 per cent., of the commitments were 
foreign born. The average daily number of inmates exceeds 
the average of last year by 30. 

Of the 248 girls discharged or released during the year, 9 
ran away; 158 were released on parole to relatives or to families 
for employment ; 3 went to witness in court ; 1 to visit her home ; 
25 from visiting the school; 34 were transferred to other insti- 
tutions, not penal; 14 were sent to other institutions, penal; 
and 7 became of age at the school and were thereby discharged. 
This school receives girls up to the age of seventeen years, 
who are committed by the court or transferred by the State

Board of diaritj as delinquents. There are an administration 
building, a chapel, a small hospital, a storehouse, dairy and 
farm buildings, and ten cottages. One of these cottages is in 
the town of Bolton, a mile and a half from the school, and is 
used as a disciplinarj house for those girls who get along badly 
in the main school. 

When a girl is received she begins a course of training which 
comprises the ordinary household duties, sewing, sloyd, basketry, 
attendance at school, work in the gymnasium, and instruction 
in singing. Each cottage is in charge of a matron who is mis- 
tress of discipline and stands in the relation of a mother to the 
girls under her care. The length of time necessary to complete 
this course varies according to the character and ability of the 
girl. One who is of average mental ability and amenable to 
reasonable discipline may complete the course in eighteen 
months, although many are detained for a longer period because 
experience has proved that in many cases they do not bear them- 
selves well when placed in the community. 

When she has completed her term at the school a girl is pa- 
roled and assigned to one of the visitors in the parole depart- 
ment. 

As appears from the data just given, the offences for which 
girls are committed to the school are largely those against the 
person, involving offences against chastity. The visitor's knowl- 
edge of her girl must be very much more intimate and her visi- 
tation much more frequent than is required in the visitation of 
boys. This fact is recognized in the distribution of the girls 
among the visitors who have hardly a third as many children 
in their care as have the visitors to the boys. 

As already indicated, 22 of the 155 girls paroled last year 
went immediately to parents or relatives. One hundred and 
twenty-seven were placed at work for wages, 2 went to their hus- 
bands, and 4 to attend school. The paroled girls are visited as 
frequently as the visitor's time will permit and the exigencies of 
the case require. The visitor endeavors to become a close friend 
of the girl ; is her intermediary between her and her employer ; 
and is concerned in finding her newer and better positions and 
leading her to that degree of self-reliance and self-respect which 
will make her of value to herself and to the communitv. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 45 

An examination of the records of the 111 girls who passed 
out of the care of the parole department in the past year shows- 
that of 56, it could be said that their conduct was good; of 12 
it was bad; and of 14 unknown. In 29 cases it was impossible 
to classify. This means that something over half were known 
to be good, a little over one-tenth to be bad, and it is a fair as- 
sumption that of the remainder put down as unclassifiable, some, 
at least, may be presumed to be good. 

There still remain a very large number of feeble-minded 
children at the school, and until provision is made for them, 
either at the Wrentham State School or elsewhere, they will 
continue to nullify partially the efforts of the school to reform 
the character of the normal delinquent. During the year the 
lowest grade of these feeble-minded have been removed from 
Mary Lamb cottage to Putnam cottage which is more isolated 
and which has larger accommodations, — approximately 40 
children. These low-grade children are kept as much as possible 
from contact with the other girls in the school, and no effort is 
made to take them beyond the lower elementary classes in the 
school. They have, however, a special teacher who succeeds 
in interesting them and under whom they accomplish really 
creditable work of its kind. They are also much interested in 
operating a loom to make towelling, and find useful and pleas- 
ant occupation in gardening and work about the grounds. 

There are also a considerable number of higher grade feeble- 
minded of a class now designated as " defective delinquents," 
who are the gravest menace to discipline. These girls are in- 
telligent enough to know that the methods that may be used in 
restraining them are very limited, and many of them are 'mali- 
cious enough to conduct themselves in such manner as to keep 
the school perpetually on the brink of an outbreak. Many ex- 
periments have been made in the matter of handling this class of 
girls, but as yet the problem is not satisfactorily solved. 

Study has been going on for more than a year by a trained 
research worker, who is investigating the heredity of the girls 
connnitted to the school. It is as yet too early to say anything 
of the results, but it is hoped that the investigation may ulti- 
mately result in a clearer understanding of this class of cases, 
and that out of it may grow some practicable suggestion looking

to the prevention of juvenile delinquency among girls and a 
better comprehension of the methods of treatment 

Many of the girls at the school arrive with one form or 
another of venereal disease, and much attention is given to 
their treatment. Those who have these diseases in a communi- 
cable form are segregated in one cottage under the immediate 
supervision of a trained nurse. 

Out of an appropriation of $76,700, a total of $76,699.90 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $32,714.49 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $43,985.41. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance, computed on expenses, less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $4,833. Total receipts from all sources 
other than the State treasury, $88.01. 'Net cost of maintenance

number of persons employed to daily average number of in- 
mates, 1 to 4.5. For detailed analysis of receipts and expendi- 
tures, see pp. 65-72. 

During the year an electric lighting system has been put in 
and 1,300 feet of concrete walks were built. The girls did the 
excavating for the sidewalks. A pumping system was put in at 
Bolton cottage, and a new barn and outbuildings have been 
erected there. Several of the buildings of the school have been 
painted and other minor repairs and improvements made. The 
total expended out of appropriations for special purposes was 
$21,241.83. 

Special improvements for which the Trustees seek appropria-

Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 47 

The central school building is intended to supply a much- 
needed improvement in facilities for teaching and for assem- 
bling all the inmates at one time. This building would also 
contain a gymnasium. 

The cottage is rendered necessary by the pressure of mental 
defectives, a most difficult class, of whom there are many in this 
school. If proper provision were made at Waverley or 
Wrentham or elsewhere for those children who are pronounced 
feeble-minded by expert authority, there would not be the 
necessity for additional accommodations at the school. Under 
the circumstances, however, there seems to be no alternative but 
to provide for them here. 

The farmhouse would establish the farm, stable, and groimds 
department upon a proper basis. The present arrangement is 
wholly inadequate. 

MASSACHUSETTS HOSPITAL SCHOOL. 
John E. Fish, M.D., Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $286,924.55. 
formal capacity of plant, 250. Value per imit of capacity, 
$1,147.69. 

Provides care and schooling for crippled and deformed chil- 
dren. 

During the year 270 cases, representing the same number of 
separate children, have been under care. This total is 7 more 
than in 1911 and 40 more than in 1910. 

On December 1, 1911, there were 210 children in the school. 
Sixty new cases were admitted and 43 discharged during the 
year. The maximum number at any one time was 239, the 
minimum, 193, and the daily average, 228.56, an increase of 
13.79 over the preceding year. The average age at time of ad- 
mittance was nine years and ten months. 

All of the children admitted were certified by physicians as 
being physically unsuitable for instruction in the public schools. 
Twenty-three of these were cases of bone tuberculosis, 25 of 
various forms of paralysis, 12 of rickets, malnutrition, and 
deformities. 



48 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Twenty-one of the children discharged entered the public 
schools or some form of employment ; 4 were incapable of 
physical improvement or nnable to benefit by attendance at 
school; 10 were removed by parents contrary to the advice of 
the Trustees; and 8 died. Death was caused by tuberculosis 
in 6 instances and by pneumonia and nephritis in 1 each. 

The infirmary has cared for the surgical cases and temporary 
illnesses of the children, but the general health has been remark- 
ably good during the year. The school has been entirely free 
from epidemic of contagious or infectious diseases, and the 
quarantine cottages have not been used except for a case of ery- 
sipelas in one of the employees. This record is remarkable when 
it is remembered that there have been upwards of 4,000 visitors, 
and that children have made 175 visits to homes or friends dur- 
ing the period. 

Children are carefully examined when admitted and those re- 
quiring surgical treatment are put into good physical condition 
before operation. Cases requiring apparatus receive the par- 
ticular treatment which the condition necessitates. After these 
steps treatment consists largely in an abundance of fresh air 
by night as well as by day, and plenty of nutritious food. 

The average time of attendance at school is one and one-half 
hours daily, but as the classes are small instruction is intensive 
and the children are able to accomplish as much as normal 
children in the public schools. 

Emphasis is put upon recreation, and everything is done to 
encourage the boys and girls to engage in play. Swimming, 
coasting, skating, baseball, and football in their seasons have no 
more ardent devotees than, these youngsters whose physical 
handicaps would seem to make indulgence in these active sports 
impossible. 

On June 26 nine boys and four girls received diplomas as 
graduates from the 8th grade. The occasion was observed by 
exercises attended by friends and relatives of the pupils, the 
teachers, officers and employees, and invited guests. The enter- 
tainm^ent was furnished by the graduating class, who read 
papers dealing with their experience in the branches of the 
school work in which they had been especially interested. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 49 

Four of tJie graduates left the scliool, one to enter the public 
high school and three to go to work. The remainder have taken 
up the various branches of industry in the school, as their physi- 
cal condition did not warrant their discharge. 

'No provision for high school instruction has as yet been 
made, but it seems particularly advisable for such children 
whose mentality warrants it, and whose ability to undertake 
laborious tasks would be doubtful. 

A great deal of milk is required for the daily use of the 
school. In order to control both quantity and quality of supply 
it is considered wise to begin a herd of cows and produce some 
part if not all of it. 

The present water supply which is taken from the town of 
Canton is very expensive and frequently insufficient. The pres- 
sure is so low as to be inadequate in case of fire. The appro- 
priation is asked for an independent supply by means of drilled 
wells. 

Sufficient of the original appropriation of $300,000 remains 
to provide ultimately for 300 children, the number contem- 
plated by the statute which established the school. 

Out of an appropriation of $69,027, a total of $66,665.45 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $27,368.16 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $39,197.29. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $5,575. Total receipts from all sources 
other than the State treasury, $38,679.74. Net cost of main- 
tenance to the Commonwealth, $27,885.71. Ratio of daily 
average number of persons employed to daily average number 
of inmates, 1 to 3.6. For detailed analysis of receipts and 
expenditures, see pp. 65-72. 

The farm buildings have been completed during the year, 
and fair progress made upon the assembly hall and a new cot- 
tage for the larger boys. These buildings will be ready for 
occupancy early in the coming year. The total expended out 
of appropriations for special purposes was $25,620.86. The 
following estimates of the Trustees for special purposes are 
approved by this Board : — 



50 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

1. Water supply $7,000 00 

2. Cow barn 3,000 00 

Item one seeks not only to cover a dangerous fire risk, result- 
ing under present conditions from a maximum of 40 pounds 
pressure, but also to provide an independent supply at an ulti- 
mate saving in cost. The amount asked for is estimated to 
cover a drilled well, deep pumping apparatus, tower, forced 
main, and pump house. 

The second item grows out of the necessity of controlling the 
quantity and quality of the milk supply, the most important 
element of diet for the class of patients at this school. Milk is 
at present purchased in the open market. The item contem- 
plates only the beginning of a plan by which this institution 
will eventually produce its own milk. 

THE STATE TUBERCULOSIS SANATORIA. 

The Board's supervision of tuberculosis hospitals covers the 
Rutland, Lakeville, iN'orth Reading, and Westfield State Sana- 
toria, and the tuberculosis wards at the State Infirmary. The 
four separate institutions are administered by one Board of 
Trustees, the Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives. 

During the year these four institutions treated 2,343 cases, 
with a combined normal capacity of 812 patients, and a daily 
average population of 867.27; emphasis is laid upon the fact 
that tents and temporary shacks are largely depended upon to 
take care of pressing numbers. Even with these additions the 
waiting lists are long. 

Of the total number cared for, 827 were in residence at the 
beginning of the year. The 1,515 admissions during the year 
were offset by the 1,467 discharges, leaving 875 on ^N'ovember 
30, 1912. 

Of the 1,515 cases admitted, 255 were classed as incipient; 
495 as moderately advanced; 743 as advanced; 12 as non- 
tubercular; and 10 as undetermined. They averaged twenty- 
eight years and six months old at the time of admittance ; 320 
being minors and 1,188 adults. Eight hundred and four were 
males; 711, females. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 51 

The discharges were classified as follows : disease arrested, 
385 ; condition improved, 438 ; condition not improved, 231 ; 
non-tubercular, 10 ; died, 237 ; unclassified because of shortness 
of stay, 166. 

Further classification bv ages has resulted in assembling the 
children at Westfield, where there were at the close of the year 
60 persons between the ages of -^ye and sixteen. 

Perhaps the most important indication from the year's 
statistics is the increase shown in the average duration of stay. 
The discharged cases that were considered — 1,301 in number 
— were found to have spent an average of 185.5 days under 
care in the institution. This figure exceeds the average of last 
year by twenty-four and one-fourth days. That is to say, every 
patient who has been discharged from a State sanatorium in 
1912 has, on the average, stayed at the sanatorium three and 
one-half weeks longer than the corresponding patient leaving 
the institution in 1911. 

In connection with this fact it is to be noted that 823, or 
63.3 per cent, of all the discharged cases that were considered, 
were sent away either with the disease apparently arrested or 
with condition improved. The corresponding percentage for 
last year was 57.6. 

Experience is demonstrating the wisdom of the sanatorium 
as an educational agent in a broader scheme for combating the 
disease. Experiments in after-care have led the Trustees this 
year to organize a definite system for following up cases dis- 
charged from the sanatoria. An agent will follow the dis- 
charged patients into their homes, seeking to help them to better 
conditions there. In addition, an effort more thoroughgoing 
than ever is being made at the institution itself, to teach the 
patient better standards of home sanitation and physical care. 

Separate report is not made upon the tuberculosis depart- 
ment of the State Infirmary. It is considered under the gen- 
eral heading of the State Infirmary, at p. 25 ante. The 
four separate sanatoria follow : —

Improvements of importance during the year have been the 
construction of the new horse barn to a point near completion, 
the bettering of fire protection, and the resurfacing of the road 
over which most of the institution supplies must be hauled.

total niiinber of cases is 8 less than in 1911 and 119 more than 
in 1910. Of the whole number, 163 were in residence at the 
beginning of the year. The remaining 342 cases were admitted

The present needs of this hospital are set out in the following 
estimates of the Trustees, all of which are approved by this 
Board : — 



56 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

1. Pavilion for 30 patients, -^ith quarters for 9 employees, 

and equipment $13,000 00 

2. Two additions to present wards for 5 additional private 

rooms each in men's and women's wards, with baths , 6,000 00 

3. Land and equipment for dairy 12,000 00 

4. Laboratory equipment 1,000 00 

Total $32,000 00 

The pavilion represents the pressure of the long waiting list 
at this sanatorium. It Tvould mean permanent increase in 
normal capacity. 

The estimate for land and dairy equipment includes 75 acres 
of land and two tenement houses and two barns now standing, 
$6,000; forty cows and dairy equipment, $4,000: remodelling 
bam and water supply, $2,000. 

The institution at present consimies an average of 45 cans (8 
quarts each) of milk per day, at 55 cents per can. The total 
cost for the year exceeds $9,000. The land desired is suitable 
and is considered adequate for the production of the necessary 
milk supply. The permanent saving in the cost of milk, after 
the establishment of the dairy, would equal, if not exceed, 
$2,500 per year over the present outlay, assuming the market 
cost of milk to remain at its present figure. 

The laboratory equipment for which $1,000 is asked is con- 
sidered by this Board to be a vital necessity, in view of the 
fimdamental purpose of the institution.

The discharged cases numbered 304, namely, 162 males and 
142 females, classified according to condition as follows : disease 
arrested, 80, or 26.31 per cent. ; improved, 56, or 18.42 per 
cent.; not improved, 68, or 22.36 per cent.; non-tubercular, 5; 
died, 73, or 24.01 per cent. ; unclassified because of shortness of 
' stay, 22, or 7.23 per cent. 

The largest daily census was 186 ; the smallest, 162 ; average,

Out of an appropriation of $87,000, a total of $86,999.81 
was expended for the 'maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $35,424.66 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $51,575.15. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $9,463. Total receipts from all sources 
other than the State treasury, $26,448.51. l^et cost of mainte- 
nance to the CommonwerJth, $60,551.30. Ratio of daily

of inmates, 1 to 2.4. For detailed analysis of receipts and ex- 
penditures, see pp. 65-72. 

A new cow monitor, to tie up 40 cows, has been built since 
the last report and a small herd started with a view to produc- 
ing the necessary milk supply. A small recreation room has 
been added to the dining-room, rendering the combination avail- 
able as a stage and auditorium. The total expended from ap- 
propriations for special purposes was $7,412.34. 

Certain pressing needs of this hospital are set out in the 
following estimates of the Trustees, all of which are approved 
by this Board : — 



58 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

1. Construction and equipment of a children's ward to 

house 60 patients $20,000 00 

2. Construction and equipment of a combination power 

plant and laundry 17,000 00 

Total $37,000 00 

The quarters for children are part of a plan for better classi- 
fication. This arrangement would group all children under 
sixteen years of age at the Westfield Sanatorium. Housing 
them there requires new construction, which, at the same time 
that it affords vastly improved facilities for the care and treat- 
ment of children, releases for the use of adults an equal number 
of beds now occupied hj children. 

The power plant and relocation of laundry is a necessity not 
only on the score of economy but also as a better safeguard 
against fire. The present heat and power apparatus is installed 
in the basement of the central building in the institution group. 

PENIKESE HOSPITAL, PENIKESE ISLAND. 
Frank H. Parker, M.D., Superintendent. 

This institution is administered directly by the Board. Total 
valuation of plant, real and personal, $110,980.44. ISTormal 
capacity, 19. Value per unit of capacity, $5,841.07. 

Provides hospital care and treatment for persons afflicted 
with leprosy. During the year 17 persons have been under 
care. This total is 4 more than in 1911 and 6 more than in 
1910. Of the number cared for, 13 were in lesidence at the 
beginning of the year, 4 were admitted, and 2 were discharged, 
leaving 15 patients on l^ovember 30, 1912. Of the cases dis- 
charged, 1 died and 1 was turned over to the federal authorities 
for deportation. All of the 4 cases admitted were males. One 
was diagnosed as auEesthetic leprosy and 3 as having the disease 
in the tubercular form. 

On the morning of January 13, 1912, the administration 
house with practically all its contents was destroyed by fire. 
^Vith the temperature at 4 degrees below zero, and access to the 
Island hazardous by reason of rough water and floating ice, it

was exceedingly fortunate that the store of food supplies was 
not consumed. The administrative building, which contained 
the ofl&ce, living quarters for the superintendent and staff, and 
kitchen for both employees and patients, has been replaced by 
a fireproof structure of concrete which, though it does not afford 
increased floor plan, does provide more ample and better quar- 
ters than the old wooden structure. In addition, some much- 
needed laboratory facilities are afforded in the new construction. 

The Board considers the year in some respects noteworthy 
in the progress of this hospital. It has become apparent that 
in the present state of public feeling toward leprosy the hos- 
pital at Penikese can no longer be looked upon as an experiment 
or a temporary isolation camp. The influx of persons afflicted 
with this disease is steady and not likely to diminish greatly. 
On the other hand, practitioners in increasing numbers are 
becoming familiar with the appearance of the disease and con- 
versant with its diagnosis. Hence, more cases are likely to 
come to public notice than formerly. The institution must be 
looked upon as a permanent undertaking of the State in its 
war against contagious diseases. 

Out of these considerations has gro^vn the Board's convic- 
tion that Penikese must hereafter be regarded as a hospital, 
and conducted upon a hospital basis rather than an isolated 
colony of homes. To this feeling is added the further belief 
that every State institution for the care of sick persons should 
be a station or laboratory for scientific research, to the end 
that the State itself may the better profit by clearer under- 
standing of its task and of the remedy, and that mankind in 
general may benefit by the progress of scientific knowledge. 

Charged with the direct administration of this hospital, the 
Board is setting into operation for Penikese that plan .which 
as a Supervisory Board it believes should be installed in every 
hospital under its supervision. Penikese is made a station 
where specialists in tropical diseases may go for assistance in 
a study of leprosy and the means of combating its progress. 
The plan is ambitious in that it hopes to attract a selected group 
of experienced students of this subject to carry on special re- 
search, under the Board's direction, with the aid of the hos-

pital staff. It is successfiil even thus far in that it has secured 
the earnest co-operation of eminent pathologists and bacteriolo- 
gists, gladly given. If hopes are but fairly realized it means 
that the State, without additional outlay from the tax-levy, 
secures the voluntary service of those whose efforts may become 
of untold value to the community. 

Since the beginning of the year, James A. Honeij, M.D., has 
been appointed assistant resident physician. Dr. Honeij is an 
able physician, skilled in the special work for which he has 
been chosen. Under the guidance of Superintendent Parker, 
and with the assistance of a resident nurse, appointed just sub- 
sequent to the ending of the year, it is felt that the medical 
service, and consequently the condition of the individual pa- 
tients, can be much improved. 

Kindly assistance has been rendered by the medical advisory 
committee, who have given much time and thought to the prob- 
lems of the institution. Since the close of the year, but before 
going to press, one of their number, Simeon B. Wolbach, M.D., 
professor of pathology in the Medical School of Harvard Uni- 
versity, an eminent scholar in the field of research pertinent 
to this problem, has been appointed visiting pathologist. His 
willing response to this request is highly appreciated by the 
Board. The virtual direction and oversight which he now exer- 
cises in the Penikese laboratory represents that sort of highly 
skilled service,, the value of which to the community cannot be 
measured in terms of the tax-levy. 

With an appropriation of $13,369, a total of $14,838.92 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution, creating a 
deficit of $1,469.92. Of the amount expended, $4,690.44 was 
for salaries, wages, and labor ; all other expenses, $10,148.48. 
Weekly per capita cost of maintenance computed on expenses 
less sales and refunds from maintenance, $20,085. Total re- 
ceipts from all sources other than the State treasury, $92.86. 
'Net cost of maintenance to the Commonwealth, $14,746.06. 
Ratio of daily average number of persons employed to daily 
average number of inmates, 1 to 3.3. Por detailed analysis of 
receipts and expenditures, see pp. 65-72. 



Part I.l GENERAL VTORK OF THE BOARD. 61 



FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION OF INSTITUTIONS. 

The Board in its supervision of the financial administration 
of the several State charitable institutions — the plant and its 
upkeep and maintenance — inspects each institution through 
paid officers at least once each 'month and through its own com- 
mittees and individual members at frequent intervals. 

Monthly analysis is made of all articles of food, coal, hay, 
and grain purchased, and tabulated results sent to each institu- 
tion. In addition, sundry tables covering the year's operations 
have been prepared. 

The following tables are designed to show in detail the finan- 
cial condition of each institution. A convenient summary of 
the State's property represented by each institution is followed 
by an analysis of receipts and a similar analysis of expendi- 
tures. Finally a detailed analysis of expenditures is followed 
by a comparison of all appropriations and the expenditures 
made therefrom. 

I. Inventory. 

Inventory of State property represented by the institutions 
is shown in Table TV. This tabulation is in four parts. Parts 
I. and II. exhibit realty ; Part III. shows personalty ; Part IV. 
summarizes the whole. 

From Parts I. and II. it appears that on INovember 30, 1912, 
the twelve State Charitable Institutions returned $4,780,704.95 
in real estate, $311,464.21 of this amount being land, and $4,- 
469,240.81 representing buildings. Chattels real and other 
items of betterment are not separately considered ; hence water, 
telephone, fire, and sewerage systems are to be found in the 
miscellaneous columns imder the head of " buildings." 

Part III. shows the uniform analysis of personal property 
adopted by the State Auditor, to the amount of $1,009,764.92. 
The total valuation, real and personal, as shown in Part TV., 
is $5,790,469.87.

II. Receipts. 

Table V. is designed to show every item of income to each 
institution from whatever source for whatever purpose, except- 
ing certain private funds, casting all together for ready com- 
parison. The tabulation also shows such of the receipts as 
under the law are available for maintenance purposes in 1913. 
a^ccording to this table the total receipts from all sources were 
$2,092,805.15. Of this amount, $1,885,356.65 was received 
from the State treasury, and the remainder, $207,448.50, came 
in on account of the institution, through board of patients, sale 
of products, or otherwise. Of this latter figure, $154,904.73 
is available for maintenance purposes in 1913.

Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 67 

III. Expenditures. 

Table VI., divided into four parts, shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part I. 
deals with maintenance only. Part II. exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four headings, namely, ^' land,'^ 
^' buildings,'' " furnishings and equipment,'' and " miscel- 
laneous." In Part III. are shown all moneys expended for 
purposes so far apart from the institution proper as to fall 
outside the uniform classifications. With two exceptions, 
Trustees' expenses appear in the miscellaneous column under 
"maintenance." These two exceptions are expenses for the 
Trustees of the Training Schools and of the Trustees in charge 
of the State sanatoria. Because of various duties these two 
Boards of Trustees have appropriations apart from the grants 
for their institutions. Part III., in addition to these special 
outlays, shows also the industries fund administered by the 
Trustees in charge of the State Farm. This fund is self-per- 
petuating, and, though a State outlay, is so far separate as to 
require individual treatment in the classification. Part IV. 
summarizes the whole. 

The table shows that $1,571,331.05 was spent for mainte- 
nance exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned 
in Part II., which amounted to $192,286.44. By adding to 
these amounts $76,509.19 for sundry expenditures, as shown 
in Part III., we find a grand total of $1,840,126.68 expended 
on account of the twelve institutions. 

In addition to the total expenditures as indicated above, two 
institutions — Lyman School and the Industrial School for 
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for 
the benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's invest- 
ment. The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, 
whose duty it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the 
request of the trustees. Three of those trusts — the Lyman 
fund, the Lyman Trust fund, and the Lamb fund — apply to 
Lyman School, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb, and the Rogers 
School funds pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From 



68 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

these sources a total of $2,365.47 was expended during the year, 
of which $47.34 was for books out of the Rogers fund, and the 
balance from the Lyman and Mary Lamb funds. The major 
part of the outlay was for entertainments, drill and band equip- 
ment, athletic goods, lectures, prizes, and similar miscellaneous 
items.

IV. Analysis of Maintenance and Net Per Capita. 

The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises 
eight classes or divisions, namely, ^' salaries, wages, and labor ; '^ 
"" food ; '' ^' clothing and clothing materials ; " " furnishings ; " 
" heat, light, and power ; '' ^' repairs and improvements ; " 
" farm, stable, and grounds ; " and '^ miscellaneous." Table 
VII. is correspondingly divided into eight parts, with a 
summary, and shows for each of the twelve institutions 
the total cost of maintenance for each of the main headings 
in the analysis. It further shows all receipts from sales 
or refunds ; the difference, which is the net cost to the 
institution; and the average net weekly per capita cost to the 
institution, with a column showing the corresponding per capita 
for the three-year period just ended.

78 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

V. Comparison of Appeopkiations and Expenditures 

TPIEREFROM. 

Table YIII. affords comparison of appropriations for main- 
tenance with the respective amounts expended therefrom. Ap- 
propriations are classified as " receipts available for mainte- 
nance/' and " appropriations in addition to such receipts." All 
receipts at the four sanatoria and the Hospital School, though 
turned, like receipts of all the other institutions, into the State 
treasury, are by law applicable to maintenance in the succeed- 
ing year. Receipts at the remaining institutions are not so ap- 
plied. By this comparison, the total maintenance expenditures 
exceeded the total appropriations by $16,133.83, that amount 
representing the net deficit. Balances covered back into the 
treasury from all the several appropriations totalled $2,496.66. 
Inasmuch as this sum by such reversion ceases to be available 
for institutional purposes, the equivalent should be added to 
the deficiency just stated in order to show the apparent deficit 
which must be met by additional appropriations. This appar- 
ent deficit totals $18,630.49. The heaviest deficit was incurred 
at the Lyman School, where there has been an unforeseen in- 
crease in the number of boys committed by the courts. Receipts 
of 1911 available for maintenance in 1912 totalled $143,752.87. 
This sum. was received largely on account of board of patients 
at the State sanatoria.

80 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

VI. Appeopeiatioints foe Special Pueposes. 

The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1912, 
as shown by Table IX., was $288,694. In addition to this 
amount, the several institutions began the year with a total of 
$188,452.74 unexpended balance on previous special appro- 
priations. The grand total available for 1912 was, therefore, 
$477,146.74. The amount expended from this total was $192,- 
286.44, leaving an unexpended balance of $284,860.30, of 
which $284,743.03 will be available in 1913. The small re- 
mainder of $117.27 reverts to the State treasury.

82 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



VII. JSTet Cost to the Commonwealth. 

The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between total expenditure and the 
total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
This total outlay must cover all moneys spent for maintenance 
and special purposes, together with all expenditures for sundry 
purposes apart from the institution, and interest on outstand- 
ing bonds. These items are compared in Table X. For con- 
venience, the daily average number of inmates and the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabulation 
shows a daily average number of inmates of 6,893.58, and ex- 
penditures for all purposes of $1,910,324.43. Total receipts 
from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State treasury, 
amounted to $207,448.50. The net cost to the State for all 
twelve institutions amounted to $1,702,875.93, making the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State $4,737.

84 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. , [P. D. 17. 

VIII. Analysis of Pay Roll. 
Table XI., divided into six parts, shows a comparative analy- 
' sis of the pay roll for each of the twelve institutions. The first 
five parts divide service into 'Ryo classes, namely, " general ad- 
ministration," " medical service," " ward service," " repairs 
and improvements," and " farm, stable, and grounds." Part 
six summarizes the whole. The table also shows the full roster, 
that is, the number of employees deemed necessary to carry on 
the institution efficiently, and in an opposite column the daily 
average number employed, with the same average for the three- 
year period ending November 30, 1911. The same treatment • 
is given the average monthly compensation and the weekly per 
capita cost. Thus it appears that the full roster for all the 
institutions together was 1,214. The total average number 
employed was 1,162.64, while for the three-year period preced- 
ing 1912 it was 1,021.47. The average total monthly compen- 
sation paid was $513,105 as against $463,845 in the preceding 
three-year period. Miscellaneous and incidental employment 
not entered upon the pay rolls of the institutions does not ap- 
pear in this tabulation. The number of inmates to one em- 
ployee remains about constant.

98 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

As Trill be seen from the table, there were 851 boys in tbe six 
schools during 1912. The year began with 591. During the 
twelve months, 260 were admitted and 248 were discharged, 
leaving 603 on Xovember 30, when the year closed. 

The average age of the 603 boys in the schools at the close 
of the year was eleven years and eleven months. Ages at the 
time of admittance ranged from seven years — a Middlesex 
school boy — to fifteen years and nine and one-half months, at 
the Hampden County School. The average age at the time of 
admittance was eleven years and four months. 

These children are all school offenders, mostly truants. Xo 
history record of the boy is kept other than the chronicle of 
his life at the school, so that delinquency other than remaining 
away from school is not discoverable. Inquiry on visitation 
indicates, however, in the case of many of these little fellows, 
that truancy has been merely one charge preferred out of a 
series of delinquencies growing usually out of unfavorable home 
conditions. 

In the case of the Suffolk School, paroled cases come under 
the care of the Trustees for Children of the City of Boston, 
and are supervised in common with children placed out. Save 
for this one exception, conditions in the homes are not in- 
quired into imless the superintendent himself is personally 
interested. He has no official obligation to take notice of the 
boy after he leaves the premises. Adding to this the fact that 
the first intimation of a boy's arrival at the school is the ap- 
pearance of the boy himself, carrying with him no other in- 
foiTQation than the mittimus, it is safe to say that whatever 
benefit might be conferred upon the boy before and after his 
service in the school is almost completely lost Any competent 
parole system necessarily implies personal supervision, includ- 
ing visitation of the home or other conditions into which paroled 
boys are released. , 

In this connection, however, the fact that the Superintend- 
ent?, so far as their limited time ]3ermits. are making a sustained 
effort to keep in touch with their paroled boys should not go 
unnoticed. It indicates faithfulness and efficiency on the part 
of these officers, and at the same time betravs the truth about 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 99 

the system; the boards of commissionerSj who control the 
schools, are neglecting the parole system. They should be as 
deeply interested in the condition of their paroled boys as they 
are in their welfare as inmates of the schools. In some in- 
stances, noted on visitation, paroled boys have fled from impos- 
sible homes and returned to the school to beg food and shelter. 
Such instances do not speak well for the oversight required of 
the commissioners in their administration of the parole system. 

Efficiency of management, indicated partially on the finan- 
cial side of the weekly per capita cost of maintenance, compares 
favorably with former years. Differences in location and in 
opportunity for institution income are responsible largely for 
the variance in cost. The numbers in the administrative force 
also vary considerably. The Suffolk School, with an average 
of 128 boys throughout the year, maintains an average force 
of 38 employees and a ratio of 1 to 3.37. Hampden comes 
second, with an average of 32 inmates and 9 employees, a ratio 
of 1 to 3.55. The figures for the school at Walpole are 44 and 
10, respectively, a ratio of 1 to 4.4. Middlesex averages 174 
boys, with a force of 31 employees, ratio, 1 to 3.6. Essex shows 
131 and 22, respectively, ratio, 1 to 6. And Worcester, with 
averages of 66 and 7, shows a ratio of 1 to 9.43. 

Little that is new remains to be added to the last report. The 
schooling provided is suitable and easily comparable with the 
corresponding schools, and the care and oversight of the boys 
is good, within the facilities which the respective counties have 
provided. The year has brought no material changes in equip- 
ment, save at the Essex School, where a new building has been 
constructed to house classes in carpentry, sloyd, printing, and 
shoe repairing. 

On January 1, 1912, Mr. Rufus E. Corlew was appointed 
Superintendent of the Middlesex County School, to succeed 
Mr. M. A. Warren, deceased. Mr. George H. Mason has acted 
as Superintendent in the interval. 



100 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

SUPERVISION OF THE SETTLED POOR RELIEVED OR SUP- 
PORTED BY CITIES AND TOWNS. 

The City and Town Paupers. 

The law provides that the State Board of Charity may visit 
and inspect all places where city or town poor are supported in 
families, and requires the Board to visit, at least once a year, 
not only all children who are maintained by the Common- 
wealth, but all minor children who are supported at the expense 
of any city or town. Children illegally retained in city or town 
almshouses, — ue.^ pauper children over two years of age, or, 
if the mothers are inmates, over ^Ye years of age, and not 
defective in body or rdind, who have been retained in an alms- 
house for more than two months, — must be removed therefrom 
and placed at board at the expense of the city or town con- 
cerned (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 43 ; 
Acts of 1905, chapters 285, 303). 

The following data show numbers and location of the various 
classes of persons coming within the scope of this statute : — 

The Settled Adult Pook provided for in Families. 

Of the 271 adult poor persons reported by the local authori- 
ties as fully supported in families on January 1, 1912, 23 had 
died and 24 had been removed before visits could be made. 
The remaining 224 — 95 men and 129 women — were all 
visited and reported on by the Board's agents. They were 
supported by 90 cities and towns, as follows: Abington, 5 
Agawam, 1 ; Amesbury, 2 ; Avon, 3 ; Berlin, 2 ; Bernardston 
1 ; Blandford, 1 ; Bolton, 3 ; Bourne, 1 ; Boylston, 1 ; Brewster

Their ages were as follows : 3 between twenty-one and thirty ; 
19 between thirty and forty; 13 between forty and fifty; 32 
between fifty and sixty; 47 between sixty and seventy; 75 be- 
tween seventy and eighty; 29 between eighty and ninety; 5 
between ninety and one hundred; and one whose age was un- 
known. For their support there w^as paid in 15 cases less than 
$2 per week; in 48 cases from $2 to $3 per week; in 81 cases 
from $3 to $4 per week; and in the remaining 80 cases — 
mostly of old and feeble persons — the rate varied from $4 to 
$11, according to the amount of care required. Of the whole 
number, 56 per cent, were reported to be in good or fairly good 
physical condition, and 85 per cent, in good mental condition. 
In all but 13 cases, or 6 per cent., they were apparently receiv- 
ing good care. There were 97 able to do light work, either in the 
house or about the premises. There were 30 supported in their 
own homes. In 146 cases, according to the reports, the Over- 
seers of the Poor complied with the law requiring them to visit 
the paupers at least once in every six months ; in 8 cases they 
made one visit a year; in 11 cases the record of visits was un- 
certain; and in the remaining 59 cases no evidence of visits 
was found. 

Dependent Minor Children with Settlement, provided 
FOR in Almshouses. 
Visits were made in the cases of 223 children — 114 boys 
and 109 girls — reported to be cared for by the following cities 
and towns in their almshouses : Barnstable, 1 ; Boston, 48 ; 
Cambridge, 3 ; Chicopee, 1 ; Fairhaven, 1 ; Fall River, 27 ; Fal-

49 had been removed from the almshouse and 3 had died before 
the time of visitation. Of the remainder, 45 were so defective 
in body or mind as to render their retention in the almshouse 
desirable, and 1 was removed after notification by the Board 
of Overseers of the Poor that he was detained contrary to law. 
There were 15 who attended school and 6 who did more or 
less work. 



Dependent Minoe Children with Settlement, provided 
FOR in Families and Asylums. 

Of the 724 children reported by the local authorities as fully 
supported outside of almshouses on January 1, 1912, 24 were 
unknown and 139 had been removed before visits could be 
made. The remaining 561 — 326 boys and 235 girls — were 
supported by 70 cities and towns, as follows : Abington, 2

Of the whole number, 89 were cared for and treated in public 
and private hospitals and asylums. There were 431 who at- 
tended school, and 199 who did more or less work. Of the 
whole number, 511 were in fairly good physical condition and 
556 in fairly good mental condition. The price of board varied 
from less than $1 per week to $4. These children were found 
to be well cared for; the few exceptions have been brought to 
the attention of the local overseers. 



The Penalty incurred by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month oe April, 1912. 
Sections 39-42 of chapter 81 of the Revised Laws, as 

amended by chapter 115 of the Acts of 1905, are as follows: — 

Section 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
records, in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 
paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 
their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support and 
relief. 

Section 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 
on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, 
and a record of those fully supported. 

Section 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in every 
tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers of the poor shall 
contain true and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the 
state board of charity may deem it advisable to make. 

Section 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town re- 
fuse or neglect to comply with the requirements of the three pre- 
ceding sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for each 
day's neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be deducted 
from any amount to which said city or town may be entitled in 
reimbursement for relief of state paupers as provided in sections 
fifteen and sixteen of chapter eighty-five ; and if no such reimburse- 
ment shall be due to said city or town, the forfeiture shall be de- 
ducted from any money which may be due to it from the Common- 
wealth.

ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

In addition to the duties of supervision and publicity above 
given, the Board is charged with certain duties entirely admin- 
istrative. These are chiefly grouped imder two heads, viz.. 
State adult poor and State minor wards. 

The administrative duties with reference to the State adult 
poor comprise the discharge of sane inmates of the State In- 
firmary and the State Farm; the execution of laws relative to 
the release on parole of prisoners at the State Farm ; the inves- 
tigation as to settlement of persons, possibly State cases, who 
have been supported, relieved, and buried by cities and towns, 
and of sane inmates of State institutions ; the directing of aid of 
unsettled persons by cities and towns ; the transfer of sane pau- 
pers from one institution to another ; the sending of paupers 
to the places within and without the State where they be- 
long; and the management of the leper hospital at Penikese 
Island. 

Report of Penikese hospital Avill be found at page 58 ante, 
under the heading of '^ Supervision," where it has been placed 
for better comparison with the State institutions which the 
Board super^dses. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 105 

The administrative duties with regard to State minor wards 
comprise the maintenance and care of delinquent, neglected, 
and dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment and otherwise, and the execution 
of the laws concerning abandoned infants, infant boarding- 
houses, and the licensing of lying-in hospitals. 

The State Outdoor Pooe. 
Numbers, 

Unsettled persons in distress are aided in the first instance 
by the city or town in which they are so found. Eor purposes 
of administration, these State cases are divided into the fol- 
lowing classification : — 

(a) The sick State poor (Revised Laws, chapter 85, sections 
14, 15). 

(&) Cases of dangerous diseases (Acts of 1902, chapter 213, 
amended by Acts of 1907, chapter 386, and Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 380). 

(c) Cases of wife-settlement (Revised Laws, chapter 80, sec- 
tion 1, chapter 85, section 16, amended by Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 98). 

{d) Cases of temporary aid (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sec- 
tion 21, amended by Acts of 1903, chapter 355). 

The statutes provide that the expense of such relief, follow- 
ing proper notice to the Board and approval after consideration, 
shall be reimbursed by the Commonwealth. In accordance with 
these laws 13,112 such notices were received during the ofiicial 
year from 234 cities and towns, on account of 25,891 persons, a 
net decrease of 1,129, or about 8 per cent, below the previous 
year. Of these notices, 7,292, concerning 7,994 individuals, 
were on account of persons too sick to be removed; 2,218 no- 
tices, concerning 2,228 individuals, were on account of persons 
sick with dangerous diseases; 775 notices, concerning' 3,330 in- 
dividuals, were for cases of wife-settlement; and 2,847 notices, 
covering 12,329 individuals, were for temporary aid and trans- 
portation. Or the total number of notices above mentioned, 
1,993, concerning 5,236 individuals, were in cases on account 
of which a previous notice had been received during the year. 



106 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

(a) Cases of Sick State Poor, — The '7,292 notices of sick 
State poor were sent by 161 cities and towns, concerning 7,994 
persons, of whom 7,314 were represented as being too ill to* be 
removed. This number shows a net decrease in the number of 
notices from the previous year of 343, or about 4% per cent., 
and, as compared with the official year 1909—10, a decrease of 
371, or about 4% per cent. The largest number of notices re- 
ceived in any one month was 727, in January; and the smallest, 
485, in September. Of these, 4,267, or about 58 per cent., 
were from the city of Boston, viz., 4,220 from the Boston City 
Hospital, 11 from the Institutions Department, 34 from the 
Boston Lying-in Hospital, and 2 on account of persons aided 
in their homes. The number of visits made by the officers of the 
Board in the investigation of these 7,292 notices, was 17,831. 
As a result of these investigations, the Overseers of the Poor 
were directed to discontinue aid in 2,404 cases on account of 
the recovery of the patient sufficiently to permit of his removal 
to the State Infirmary. In 415 cases aid was refused because 
at the time of the application the patient could have been re- 
moved without danger. Out of the 5,749 cases investigated by 
the visitors, settlements were found in 149, covering 180 per- 
sons. Among those reported as sick there were 532 deaths. 

(h) Cases of Dangerous Diseases. — The number of notices 
received was 2,218, from 87 cities and towns, concerning 2,228 
persons, all patients. These figures show a net decrease of 303, 
or about 12 per cent, from the previous year, and, as compared 
with the year 1909-10, a decrease of 862, or about 28 per cent. 
Of these 2,218 notices, 756, or about 34 per cent., were from the 
city of Boston. The following diseases were reported : anterior 
poliomyelitis, 4 ; anthrax, 3 ; cerebro-spinal meningitis, 9 ; 
chicken pox, 9 ; diphtheria, 496 ; leprosy, 4 ; measles, 253 ; oph- 
thalmia neonatorum, 29 ; pertussis, 12 ; rabid dog bite, 1 ; scar- 
let fever, 390 ; smallpox, 120 ; tetanus, 2 ; trachoma, 1 ; tuber- 
culosis, 629 ; and typhoid fever, 256. The number of visits 
made by the officers of the Board in these cases was 4,168, and 
of 1,536 new cases investigated settlements were found in 239, 
covering 245 persons. 

(c) Cases of Wife-settlement, — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 755, from 68 cities and towns, concerning 3,330 per- 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 107 

sons, of whom 459 were sick. These figures show a net de- 
crease in the number of notices as compared with the previous 
year of 125, or about 14 per cent., and, as compared with the 
year 1909-10, an increase of 38, or about 5%o per cent. Of 
these 755 notices, 289, or about 38 per cent., were from the city 
of Boston. As these 755 notices represent men whose families 
have settlements in some city or town within the Common- 
wealth, and one of these men was found to have a settlement, 
the total number aided by the State was 754, of whom 325 were 
sick. The number of visits made in these cases was 1,067. As 
a result of the visits, the local authorities were advised to dis- 
continue aid in 5 cases. 

{d) Cases of Temporary Aid. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 2,847, concerning 12,339 persons, from 167 cities 
and towns. The largest number of notices received in any one 
month was 892, in January, and the smallest number, 114, in 
June. The whole number shows a net decrease, as compared 
with the preceding year, of 358, or about 11 per cent., and 
with the year 1909-10 an increase of 222, or about 8% per 
cent. Of these notices, 331, or about 12 per cent., were received 
from the city of Boston. The number of visits made under 
these notices was 3,909. There were 911 new cases investigated 
by the agents of the Board, and 180 settlements were found, 
covering 702 persons. As a result of visitation, aid was dis- 
continued in 53 cases. 

Transportation has been furnished during the year to 119 
persons; of these, 28 were sent to European countries, viz., 
Azores, 3; Italy, 10; Russia, 9; Syria, 6; 20 to Canada and 
other British Provinces; 71 to other States, viz., Connecticut, 
6 ; Maine, 6 ; l^ew Hampshire, 6 ; New Jersey, 7 ; I^ew York, 
20; I^orth Carolina, 2; Ohio, 4; Pennsylvania, 6; Rhode 
Island, 2; Tennessee, 1; Vermont, 11 (Revised Laws, chapter 
81, section 21). 

Transportation has also been provided for 14 shipwrecked 
seamen, from Chatham and ISTantucket to Boston (Revised 
Laws, chapter QQ, section 7).

Cost 
The number, amoTint, and allowance of the bills examined 
by the Board, on account of cases of sick State poor, wife-set- 
tlement, dangerous diseases, temporary aid, and burials, are 
shown in the following tabulation. It is to be noted that the 
total shown in this table may vary somewhat from the total paid 
out of the treasury during the fiscal year from the appropriation 
in question. This possible variance arises from the fact that 
bills audited by this Board are in some cases not actually paid 
during the year for which the audit is shown. For actual ex- 
penditures out of these respective appropriations see pp. 157,

Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. Ill 

Aftek-care of Women and Children discharged by the 
Board from the State Infirmary. 

Beginning with a' committee composed of the two women 
members of the Board, the work of following cases discharged 
from the maternity wards of the State Infirmary has developed 
rapidly with good results. So important has it seemed to the 
welfare of the community that the committee has been increased 
by the addition of two members and made a standing committee 
of the Board. During the year this committee has considered 
the cases of 252 women who have come to the State Infirmary 
with 117 children, comprising a total of 369 admissions. For 
purposes of the committee's work, these cases were classified as 
follows: single, pregnant, 99; married, pregnant, 21; single, 
with children, pregnant, 6 ; married, with children, pregnant, 
21 ; single, with children, not pregnant, 21 ; married, with chil- 
dren, not pregnant, 36 ; single, pregnant for second illegitimate, 
12 ; single, pregnant for third illegitimate, 5 ; married, preg- 
nant for first illegitimate, 22 ; married, pregnant for second ille- 
gitimate, 7 ; pregnant, with legitimacy of expected child doubt- 
ful, 3 ; venereal only, 2. 

The discharged cases handled during the year totalled 197, 
and were classified as: discharged, 186; absconded, 3; died, 5; 
transferred to insane ward, 3. Fifty-five cases on hand at the 
close of the year were carried over into 1913. The 186 dis- 
charged cases were disposed of as follows : discharged to friends, 
16 ; to relatiA^es, 68 ; to take up housework, 33 ; to employment 
as wet nurse, 4; to go out of the State, 26 ; to the care of local 
overseers of the poor, 17 ; to the care of private societies, 18 ; 
to the Prison Commissioners, 4. The report of this committee, 
now known as the Committee on Social Service, is as fol- 
lows : — 

We regret to report that our former special visitor was obliged 
to leave on account of her health. We have been fortunate in 
securing a competent successor. The Board has added a second 
trained worker, and has extended the work, which formerly confined 
itself to mothers with one infant, to include mothers with more 
than one child — family problems — and also pregnant women 
for whom admission to the infirmary is asked by the Overseers. 



112 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The Superintendent of the infirmary early in the year appointed 
a trained nurse to do social work among the patients in the wards. 
The nurse has met regularly with the committee, has given us the 
advantage of her close contact with our cases, and has shown the 
women themselves a degree of personal attention to their comfort 
which would compare favorably with the individual care bestowed 
in a private home. In addition to the assistance already mentioned, 
the committee has had continued service of its efficient volunteers. 

The work with mothers and infants brings the committee in con- 
tact with such deep-seated problems as the social evil, feeble-mind- 
edness, and even with certain aspects of immigration. The con- 
nection between illegitimacy and the social evil proves to be closer 
as our investigations become more searching. Many of the girls — 
143 out of 250 — are unmarried, and a few more, 29 in all, have 
illegitimate children although previously married. These prove 
in the main to be women of looge character, promiscuous to a 
greater or less degree, yet in but few instances describable as pro- 
fessional prostitutes. Practically all have had steady employment 
as domestics, factory hands, shop girls, etc., and, what is more, 
they have not seemed to earn much money by their unchastity. 
Their moral laxity seems rather to go along with recreation. They 
get a dinner at a restaurant or hotel, an invitation to the theatre, 
or, while they keep to one man, their room rent. It is significant 
that, though an occasional girl falls under promise of marriage, 
rarely does one profess to have been an innocent victim, and in not 
a single instance has a mother given the plea of poverty as an 
excuse. To penetrate the motives of this type of girl whose self- 
knowledge is unreliable, whose emotions may be less simply ele- 
mental than they appear, would require years of acquaintance. So 
far as we can judge up to this point, we incline to the opinion 
that the girls we meet in the maternity ward are not bright enough 
to secure for themselves much money-return. They merely follow 
impulse without calculating for to-morrow. Whether later some 
of these same girls become tools of vice in the hands of men with 
better brains than their own is a question we are not yet able to 
answer. 

The problem of feeble-mindedness is one to be met all over the 
world in almshouse maternity wards. In certifying such cases for 
commitment as mentally defective persons, the physicians con- 
nected with the State Infirmary hold to an extreme and, under the 
circumstances, a very wise conservatism. Out of 57 women whom 
they considered to some degree subnormal they signed commit- 
ments for but 8 as either insane, feeble-minded, or epileptic. They 
advised against attempting the segregation of the other 49, be- 
cause they knew these to be women whose defect would not be 
evident in the relatively hasty consideration of a court. It is. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK. OF THE BOARD. 113 

therefore^, only in cases of conspicuoiis alienation that we take any 
legal steps. 

Enthusiasts fol- the segregation of defectives sometimes lose sight 
of the fact that a degree of evidence that may, for instance, war- 
rant counting a man or woman as feeble-minded in a chart of 
family heredity, may fall far short of justifying a court in de- 
priving him of liberty for the rest of his life. He may have been 
guilty of many oifences, yet, regarded simply as a criminal, he may 
be liable to only a short term of imprisonment. In presenting a 
case to a judge for commitment as feeble-minded, it is necessary 
that those interested be able to eliminate the possible influence of 
unfavorable surroundings on a weak will, and to make clear where 
and how any anti-social acts on the part of the person under con- 
sideration show evidences of arising from irretrievable defect. How- 
ever adequately the State may in time provide for segregating de- 
fectives, a border-line class will always remain at large. What 
social workers and judges have to determine is not the dividing line 
between subnormal and normal, — that is the affair of the neurolo- 
gist. What -they must make it their business to establish is the 
amount of defect which is incompatible with fairly good citizenship, 
— an economic border-line. Precise and detailed study of the con- 
duct of the feeble-minded in the community, such as might afford 
indisputable proof of the social and economic results of mental 
defect as distinguished from the consequences of vicious environ- 
ment, would be a starting-point from which to educate a steadfast 
public sentiment in favor of segregating defectives. 

The need of searching study stands out in the cases of defec- 
tive women who have good earning capacity. Take the case of a 
mother of three illegitimate children (two living), whose memory 
and intelligence are of so low an order as to render her entirely 
unteachable as a domestic. She yet has a good recommendation 
for several years^ service as a rough scrubber, and has received $6 
a week for this unskilled labor. Can this woman, who is of the 
type to have probably many children, be fitted into the community 
so as to offset, by her faithful plodding, the harm done by her 
irresponsibility and her unfitness for home-making? Or consider 
B more baffling case, — that of a woman who appears bright, and 
who can earn $12 a week in a silk mill. She has had two illegiti- 
mate children, and is so depraved in character that the town in 
which she has been living begged that she be not returned. Her 
home town, in another State, had the same objection to receiving 
her again. Although mentally normal, so far as can be judged, 
she appears to be devoid of moral sense, seeing no reason why she 
should not lead a loose life, or why she should not bear children by 
various fathers. The doctors call her a moral imbecile. Would 
or should any court commit such a woman as a defective? Evi-

dence of the price society pa3^s for leaving her and her kind to 
direct themselves would steadily accumulate, conld we follow such 
cases after they leave lis. At present we are nnable to do this. 

The relation of the committee's work to immigration has been 
gradually coming to the front as our investigations of the girls' 
stories have grown more thorough. We are finding that girls in a 
pregnant condition frequently come to Massachusetts from Canada, 
and in a few instances from abroad, in order to hide their shame, 
and in the hope of leaving the child to the public authorities. 
Many come from neighboring States. These cases are appealing, 
and the first impulse is to fall in with the girl's plan to screen 
herself. Experience, however, goes to show that her future is safer 
under the protection and restraint of her own family than it could 
ever be among strangers Avhere no public opinion bears close upon 
her, and that her baby, when it goes back to its mother's home, 
has a chance of growing up with the love of maternal relatives at 
least. Besides giving consideration to the girl and her baby, the 
committee have to think of the finances of our own State. Massa- 
chusetts will be called upon to care for as many dependents from 
other States and countries as she is ready to receive. We feel that 
while the State sees expensive outlays it would like to make for 
its own charges — such as adequate care for the feeble-minded — 
it ought not to be assuming burdens that belong rightfully else- 
where. An illustration is the case of a Canadian woman whose 
husband had deserted her, and who came to Massachusetts, bring- 
ing her first child, still a baby, in order to enter the infirmary for 
confinement with a child by another man. She was strongly op- 
posed to returning to Canada and professed to have no relatives 
there. We therefore placed her with her two children at house- 
work. She proved to be mentally dull, and not strong enough 
physically to care for two children. Through a few clews we 
learned of her father and sister in Canada, and after our corre- 
spondence with them won her consent to return home with her 
children. An agent of a private society met her and saw that she 
got safely to her destination. She has written back in high spirits 
over her improved circumstances, her sister having taken the older 
child and she herself being at work with the other. Had this 
woman remained here, it is quite certain that at least one of the 
children would have been a charge on Massachusetts. Another 
woman came to the infirmary for confinement after one day in 
this State. We corresponded with her clergyman in a town in a 
neighboring State, and he arranged for her to returi> at once to a 
local hospital. 

In our investigation of cases we make a special point of seeing 
or writing to relatives. So far as maternity work in an almshouse 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 115 

hospital is concerned, the committee feel themselves in a position 
to show that interviewdng the relatives of the mothers is the most 
fertile method of solving these difficult cases. Reluctant as the 
girls are to have their families know of their disgrace, once we 
have performed for them the painful task of explanation, and have 
prepared parents or kin to receive them with the first anger abated, 
these misguided girls are relieved at having nothing to hide. In 
view of the tradition as to the hardness of respectable folk towards 
frail daughters and sisters, we have been astonished at the generous 
response which the tie of blood brings forth, not once, but again 
and again. For instance, one Canadian girl, whose family had lost 
track of her for some time, gave birth at the infirmary to a child 
whose paternity she herself could not certify to. We wrote her 
father, who answered with concern and tenderness, asking that we 
return his daughter and her baby, offering in case we could not 
do this, to send some one to bring her home. The girl, however, 
preferred to remain in this country. Her brother, thereupon, came 
from Canada to the city where she was living, found employment, 
took a room in the same house with his sister, and is looking after 
her. In another instance — that of a girl whom a private society 
turned over to the State as a hopeless case — we conferred with a 
brother and sister fairly well placed in the world. The sister, of 
her own accord, travelled some distance to Boston to show us from 
her bankbook that this young mother would not become a public 
charge again, while the brother paid the girl's bill at the infirmary, 
and placed her and her child in a family to board till she was 
strong enough to go to work. Another year, with our second 
worker, better investigations will, we expect, show an even more 
striking amount of family co-operation. The newcomers at the 
State Infirmary now understand that their stories will be looked 
into, and they tell our visitors that the other girls say they might 
as well speak the truth, because it is sure to be found out anyway. 
They seem to appreciate fully that all is done in their interest, and 
indeed they could hardly fail to see that the visitors feel a personal 
concern for each one of them. 

The responsiveness of relatives finds no parallel in the attitude 
of alleged fathers towards their illegitimate offspring. Few of 
these men do anytliing for either mother or child. We should 
like to see many cases prosecuted, and hope in time to bring a fair 
number of fathers to share with the mother the burden of their 
children. 

A new piec^ of work undertaken in September is the reinstate- 
ment in the community of women with more than one child. 
Some of these are deserted wives, some the wives of prisoners, some 
are widows or unmarried women with illegitimate children, — 



116 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

cases, in short, which are lacking in qualities essential to home- 
building. They are older women whose lives have been a failure 
in some respect, and among them are an nnusual proportion of 
subnormal mothers. Some of the women, however, have come to 
grief through the fault of others. The wife of a prisoner, a mother 
with three attractive children, entered the infirmary for confine- 
ment. She was as good a woman as one would ask to meet, clean 
and thrifty, and devoted to her children. The grandparents took 
the oldest girl, but further than that the family on either side 
could not or would not help out. The wife, from repeated dis- 
appointments, had grown so hopeless of her husband's keeping 
sober and making a home for her that she begged to go out with 
her new baby to do housework, with the idea of somehow getting 
the other children together later. This she did, and two children 
remained temporarily at the infirmary. Meanwhile, on the man's 
release from prison, our visitor corresponded with him and pro- 
cured him work at his own trade with an employer who undertook 
to keep an oversight of him. He established a home, brought back 
his wife and baby, and then sent for the other three children. He 
has been working steadily since November, and to his wife's aston- 
ished delight has not been intoxicated during that period. These 
cases, many of them of more disheartening prospect than the one 
cited, put the visitors' resourcefulness to a severe test. 

During the autumn of 1912 our workers, by investigating a small 
number of cases before admission to the infirmary, have made such 
arrangements for their care that in eight instances no expense 
came upon the State. Though this saving deserves comment, the 
primary consideration in each case was the best interest of the 
girl herself. The committee believe that some girls fare better else- 
where than in a public hospital, and hope in the coming year to 
develop this side of their work through a close co-operation with 
local overseers through whom the women are sent to the infirmary. 

The committee has been the means of bringing about in one 
part of the State what promises to be constructive welfare work. 
Early in the autumn our visitors began to notice that a fair num- 
ber of cases came from the same region. The situation was within 
the reach of preventive measures, and a group of citizens in this 
community are already earnestly facing their need of supervised 
amusements and more recreation of a wholesome sort. 

Whatever success we may meet with in solving complicated case- 
problems, the final justification of the committee's work will depend 
upon such evidence as we can amass, to disclose the nature of the 
social disorders whei-eof our baffling cases are symptoms.

Alieit Immigeaxts. 

Under the operation of the rnles laid down bj the Eederal 
Department of Commerce and Labor governing reimbursement 
by the United States government to States for aid rendered to 
indigent alien immigrants who have fallen into distress within 
a year after landing, the Board reported to the Commissioner 
of Immigration, during the year ending JSTovember 30, 1912, 
46 cases of such immigrants, of which 14 were verified and 
allowed. Of the remaining 32, 9 were not verified, 1 was dis- 
charged from hospital before investigation by the United States 
officials, 3 were withdrawn, 3 were paid by relatives or friends, 
3 died, 1 was found not to have landed within the year, 3 ab- 
sconded, and 9 cases were not allowed. Of the 14 cases allowed, 
6 were Boston landings, and 8, ISTew York. The amount re- 
ceived by the Board and transmitted to the Treasurer of the 
Commonwealth during the year was $592.85. This covered 17 
cases, as follows : —

By reference to the tables on page 128 et seq., it will appear 
that at the beginning of the last official year, December 1, 1911, 
there were 4,960 children in the care and custody of the Board, 
■ — 372 juvenile offenders, 2,760 neglected children, and 1,828 
dependent children. There were 782 children received during 
the year, viz., 96 juvenile offenders, 417 neglected children, 
and 269 dependent children. The total number under care dur- 
ing the year was, therefore, 5,742. There were 520 discharged, 
viz., 62 juvenile offenders, 210 neglected children, and 248 de-

pendent children. At the close of the year, ^N'ovember 30, 1912, 
there remained in charge of the Board, therefore, 5,222 chil- 
dren, classified as: juvenile offenders, 406; neglected children, 
2,967; and dependents, 1,849. Of the 5,742 children under 
care, 5,108 were over three years of age and were cared for as 
follows: in places free of expense to the State for board, 1,268 ; 
in places partly supported by the State, 74 ; in places fully sup- 
ported by the State, 2,950; at the State Infirmary and other 
institutions, not penal, subject to care and treatment, 398 ; mar- 
ried, 12 ; and whereabouts unknown, 147.^ 



Children under Three Years of Age, 

The total number of infants in charge of the Board at the 
beginning of the official year, December 1, 1911, was 388 ; the 
number received during the year was 246, making the whole 
number supported by the State 634. There remained at the 
close of the official year, ISTovember 30, 1912, 373 infants. Of 
the 634 infants supported, 5 were legally adopted, 175 were 
transferred to the Department for Older Children, having 
reached the age of three years ; 36 were discharged to relatives ; 
1 to a friend; 8 to places of settlement; and 36 died. Ten of 
the remaining 373 infants were in free homes. 

Seventy-nine of the 246 infants received were committed to 
the custody of the Board by the Overseers of the Poor and 11 
by the Superintendent of the State Infirmary under the pro- 
vision of section 20, chapter 83 of the Revised Laws. Twenty- 
five of this number were foundlings, and the remainder indi- 
gent infants having no known settlement in the Commonwealth. 
Sixty-five children were received under section 36, chapter 83, 
1 was received under section 13, chapter 83, and 12 were re- 
moved from unsuitable boarding-places under the provision of 

1 In addition to these 5,222 children, the Board had under supervision and visitation, Novem- 
ber 30, 1912, 385 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 299 inmates of the State Industrial School 
for Girls; 183 inmates of the Industrial School for Boys; 934 boys and 349 girls in the custody of 
the Trustees for Massachusetts Training Schools outside of the schools; 146 boys and 82 girls, 
inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital School; 61 boys and 103 girls, inmates of the four State 
sanatoria; 77 boys and 104 girls, inmates of the State Infirmary, who are either young infants 
with their mothers or else under hospital treatment; 603 inmates of the county training schools, 
and about 957 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns; making, approximately, 
a total of 9,505 children in the care and custody and under the supervision of the Board.

section 26, chapter 83. Seventy-eight children were committed 
as neglected under the provision of chapter 334 of the Acts of 
the year 1903, as amended by chapter 131 of the Acts of the 
year 1909. 

The medical visitors and their assistant made 4,709 visits. 
This number includes visits to infant wards boarded in fami- 
lies, investigations and inspection of homes of applicants for 
licenses for children to board; also physical examination of 
children at this office. The number of applications for children 
to board received during the year was 243. Seventeen of these 
were withdrawn; 51 were visited and approved; 16 were visited 
and disapproved. As heretofore the number of applications for 
infants to board has been in excess of our needs, but as a rule 
we find fewer women who are willing to take very young in- 
fants, because of the greater liability to illness, the extra work 
of preparing food prescribed by the physician in charge, and 
the increased cost of pure milk. 

As a rule, but two infants are placed in one home, and in 
many cases only one. 

There were 235 children admitted to the nursery, which has 
been changed to 19 Pinckney St. 

The percentage of mortality for the year for the whole num- 
ber of children supported was 5.68. 

Two hundred and twenty-three of the 634 children supported 
during the year were under one year of age. Thirty-two of this 
number died, making the percentage of deaths for infants under 
one year 14.35. 

Children over Three Years of Age. 

'No radical changes have been made during the year. The 
average number of children per visitor remains altogether too 
large to expect the results we could wish, but progress in this 
direction is being made slowly. 

The problem of the feeble-minded still presses hard upon us. 
For obvious reasons private charities are unwilling to assume 
the responsibility and financial burden of caring for defectives 
until adequate provision is made by the schools for the feeble- 



120 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



minded. Consequently, such children are committed to us in 
increasing numbers, and we are forced to make temporary pro- 
vision for them. During the year 93 have been received from 
us by the schools for the feeble-minded, which are co-operating 
to the best of their limitations. Applications are on file for 
217 more. Of these, 127 are awaiting transfer at the State 
Infirmary and 90 are being boarded in families. They are all 
cases that require institutional care which this department is 
unable to provide. During 1911, pending their admission to 
the schools for the feeble-minded, we sent all such children to 
the State Infirmary, feeling that by this method they and the 
community would be protected. This protection was secured, 
but the Trustees of the State Infirmary objected, with reason, 
to the overcrowding of their institution with these cases, and 
again the problem was forced back upon this Board. 

To meet this situation we have established ten family groups, 
each of which contains from 6 to 12 feeble-minded children. 
We have striven to secure competent caretakers, but the task is 
difficult and expensive, and when all is said and done these 
wards are given only an approximate protection without the 
training to which they are entitled. The responsibility for 
this class should not be left longer than necessary to an agency 
unprepared to cope with it, and whose energies should be free 
to do constructive work with the normal children. The present 
state of affairs means inadequate care for defective and normal 
alike, and works injustice to all children. 

Despite obstacles, we have given more serious attention to the 
education of our wards than ever before. A study of the 490 
children over fourteen years of age who are receiving educa- 
tional advantages is shown by the following table : —

There are 664 girls and 1,001 boys over fourteen years of 
age in our care. Figured in percentages this shows that of all 
children over fourteen nearly 30 per cent, are receiving an 
education, either in grammar and high school grades, night 
schools, trade schools, training schools for nurses, academies, 
or colleges. The rate for girls is a little more than 36 per cent., 
and for boys about 25 per cent. These percentages compare 
favorably with the returns from the community as shown by 
the last annual statistics of the Boston school board and the re- 
ports from our last census compilation. One hundred and 
eighty-three girls and 207 boys, or 76 and 82 per cent., respec- 
tively, of the total number over fourteen years, attend the 
grammar grades. Coming to us, as many of them do, at four- 
teen, fifteen, and sixteen years old, handicapped by lack of 
early opportunity, the explanation is not hard to seek. Poor 
heredity, with its resultant poor physical and mental equipment, 
combined with a laxness in the enforcement of the compulsory 
education law, are contributing causes to the noticeable back- 
wardness of these children. This condition should not be al- 
lowed to obtain. Stricter enforcement of school attendance, 
particularly in the smaller towns, with more medical super- 
vision in the schools, will do much to alleviate these conditions. 
In the meantime the burden is placed squarely on our shoulders 
to atone for the neglect of earlier years. 

Comparison with last year's report shows an increase in edu- 
cational advantages, particularly for the girls. This is due 
partly to the plan inaugurated two years ago of making each 
visitor to the older girls continuously responsible for a group, 
and following those girls regardless of the section of the State 
where they may be placed. This plan develops more intensive 
work with the individual, and encourages possibilities in the 
girls that are not discerned with a shifting personnel of visitors 
such as is involved in the district plan of visiting. 

We pay no tuition for any child over fifteen years, chapter 
44, section 4 of the Revised Laws being prohibitive on this 
point. It is, therefore, solely through courtesy of the various 
cities and towns that our wards are enabled to attend public 



122 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

scliools bevond this age, and their co-operation is dnlv appre- 
ciated. Handicapped by lack of early opportunity these chil- 
dren necessarily must attend school at a later age than the aver- 
age child if they are to attain the same intellectual development 
as the more protected child in its family home. 

For almost 50 per cent, of the children over fourteen, the de- 
partment is under no expense for board, families caring for 
these children through philanthropic motives or because the 
children are able to do enough work to offset the board. More 
and more we come to realize that it is poor economy to over- 
work children at the adolescent period, when their physical and 
mental powers are already taxed to their utmost. For this 
reason we pay board more than formerly for those not equal 
to the combined strain of earning their living and gaining an 
education at the same time, but who show promise of becoming 
better citizens if properly equipped with, at least, a grammar 
school education. The proportion of children for whom board 
is paid is small, everything considered. One of the private so- 
cieties with high standards of efficiency pays board for over 50 
per cent, of its children. Such children are admittedly more 
hopeful cases, on the average, than those committed to the care 
of a public agency, and the presumption is that they could more 
generally be fitted into free homes. Because the public agency 
must work ^vith the most difficult children, it should be fur- 
nished with every equipment designed to stimulate the good 
qualities in them. Public sentiment has begun to recogmize the 
far-sighted policy of boarding such children whenever that 
forms part of a plan for their eventual rehabilitation, and appre- 
ciates the fact that this present output is returned to the Com- 
monwealth in the increase of efficiency in its future citizens. 

A study of the 50 children who came of age during this year 
contains points of interest. The average length of time these 
children were in our care was eleven and one-half years, vary- 
ing from the case of one who was with us all but a few weeks 
of the twenty-one years to one who was in our care but a little 
over five years. 

The boys, of whom there were but 5, were in as many occu- 
pations, namely, one in a rubber factory, one as carpenter, one 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 123 

a teamster, one in an institution, and one at farm work. The 
average wage, so far as known, was $5.13 per week. One boy 
had savings of $45 and one other a small life insurance. The 
records give little indication of the schooling received except in 
the case of one colored boy, who is said to have taken a course 
at an academy, and of another, now a carpenter earning $15 a 
week, who had taken a correspondence course. 

Forty-five girls are included in this study. Twenty-three 
were in good health, 5 delicate, 3 had tuberculosis, 4 were feeble- 
minded, 8 were strongly suspected of being feeble-minded, and 
in the case of 2 nothing was known of their physical or mental 
condition. The majority, 19, were at housework. The others, 
not married or in institutions, were distributed among the fol- 
lowing occupations : factory work, 7 ; training for nurses, 2 ; mis- 
cellaneous and unknown occupations, 9. The average weekly 
income (allowing $4 for board in cases where the work was 
other than housework) for the girls whose wages were known 
was $2.83 a week. Four girls were married and being sup- 
ported by their husbands: 4 were in institutions. Nothing is 
known about the earning capacity of 14. We held in trust 
$2,065.30 for 35 who had saved this amount while in our care 
in amounts varying from $11.83 to $150.42. Most of these 
girls left school early, though the records are not always clear 
on this point. At least 11 left at fourteen years of age, and 
one is led to wonder what may be the relation between the lack 
of proper education and the small earning capacity as shown in 
the above figures. Two particularly fine girls stand out in this 
group, one who was in our care seventeen years and who received 
a high school and normal school training. To-day she holds a 
clerical position of responsibility, with a promising future. 
The other, a cripple, in our care twelve years, was slow to com- 
plete her grammar school education because of poor health, but 
fortunately was encouraged and helped to graduate and was 
thereby prepared to take a course in dressmaking, which is 
rapidly fitting her to be self-supporting. 



124 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Investigating Department. 

The work of tlie Investigating Department has presented 
much the same problems as in previous years. The number of 
applications for admission investigated in 1912 was 1,087, as 
against 1,050 in 1911, and for discharge in 1912, 148 as against 
162 in 1911. The work has been retarded bj the resignation at 
the beginning of the year of two of our trained workers. 

A movement on the part of ten private children's agencies to 
divide the State into districts, each to be responsible for prob- 
lems arising in their districts, has assisted the visitors greatly 
in making proper disposition of the cases. The lack of private 
initiative in certain parts of the State, particularly in western 
Massachusetts, has always been keenly felt. With the establish- 
ment this year of a private agency in Pittsfield, which assumes 
responsibility for practically the whole of Berkshire County, 
our work in this part of the State has been perceptibly lessened. 
Along with this State-wide development of private effort has 
come a decided definition of the line of division between private 
and public charity. 

The responsibility of the Board toward every applicant was 
recognized when the Investigating Department was started. It 
has developed that (1) if the child is received into the care of 
the State, and no private agency can be found to supervise the 
family, the State has a responsibility toward the family. (2) 
The responsibility of the Board in cases where children are com- 
mitted by the Overseers of the Poor as abandoned, indigent, or 
deserted is obviously to locate the parents of the child if possi- 
ble and arrange for a discharge if this seems advisable. Any 
family which requires attention after a decision has been made 
is designated as an " after-care case,'' and comes under one of 
the two divisions noted above. During the year this aft^r-care 
work has reached such dimensions that an additional visitor 
has been necessary. The work is practically a department by 
itself, and differs entirely from the investigating work of the 
visitor. It is, in nature, a work of friendly visiting in the 
home, where there is a home; and where there is no home, 
means the following of a mother, sometimes with other children.

Througli the efforts of the investigating visitors, $7,986.62 
has been received during the year from Overseers of the Poor 
for board of settled children; $2,324.88 has been received from 
relatives of unsettled children. Through the children's visitors 
in the Placing Out Department, $1,635.88 has been received. 
The total for the year is $11,947.38. 

Nonsupport Proceedings, 

The uniform desertion act (Acts 1911, chapter 456) ex- 
pressly gives the Board power to bring court proceedings against 
the parents of children who have been committed to the custody 
of the Board, to obtain from them contribution toward the sup- 
port of their children. Under this law the Board has instituted 
the work of compelling parents, particularly" fathers, when 
financially able, to pay something regularly toward the sup- 
port of their children who are in the care of the Board. In 
many cases these parents, especially those whose children were 
removed from them under the " neglect law," so called (Acts of 
1903, chapter 334), are capable of earning fair wages and, not 
having their children to support, quickly lose responsibility for 
them. To compel them to pay even a small amount regularly 
toward the support of their children is, therefore, not only just 
but expedient. 

The legal machinery provided by the uniform desertion act 
is simple and effective. A formal demand for contribution 
toward the support of the child or children is made on the 
parent, either personally or by registered mail, and an oppor- 
tunity given the parent to sign voluntarily an agreement to 
pay a reasonable amount each week to the Board. If the par- 
ent refuses or neglects to comply, a complaint is sworn out by 
an agent of the Board in the court of the district where the 
parent lives. A hearing is then had, and, upon presentation of 
the evidence that the child is being supported by the Board, the 
court places the parent on probation, and as a condition thereof 
issues an order that the parent pay a certain sum for a period 
of not more than two years to the probation officer of the court, 
which money, under the law, is applied for the benefit of the 
Board. During the past six months the sum of $1,287.25 has

been collected by compulsion, either through court proceedings 
or agreements entered into to avoid legal proceedings. The 
amount received is constantly increasing, and in time will 
amount to an appreciable saving in the expense of maintaining 
these children. 

Adoptions. 

During the past year we have received 145 applications from 
families desiring to adopt children. One hundred and eighteen 
of these homes have been given careful investigation by corre- 
spondence 'and personal visits with the following result: 31 re- 
fused as unsuitable ; 40 considered withdrawn ; 47 homes inves- 
tigated and approved; 27 awaiting investigation. 

In the 47 approved homes 44 children have been placed, and 
an effort is being made to secure suitable children for the re- 
maining 3. 

These applications come mainly from the ISTew England 
States, and the majority of them are from Massachusetts. 

Forty-two children (10 boys and 32 girls) were legally 
adopted last year. The oldest child adopted was a girl twenty 
years of age who had been a member of the family for seven 
years. Three girls, all pupils at high school, were adopted at 
the age of sixteen. One of these girls had been eleven years 
in the home. The youngest child adopted during the year was 
a girl aged two. 

Thirty-nine of these homes are located in Massachusetts, 1 in 
Rhode Island, and 2 in Connecticut. 

Seventy-four children are now on trial in homes which have 
been investigated and approved. A watchful guardianship is 
exercised over these children in their homes until the final steps 
are taken to complete adoption. It has been found advanta- 
geous to the department, as well as to the foster parents, to 
extend this trial period to at least a year's duration, although 
several children have been on trial in homes for a much longer 
time before legal adoption. 

The follov/ing tables furnish comparative data concerning 
the several classes of the Board's children : —

Lying-in Hospitals. 

To obtain a license to establish and keep a lying-in hospital, 
an applicant first files a written application with the State 
Board of Charity, stating the location of the premises desired 
to be licensed, the number of rooms, beds, and assistants, and 
the occupation of the applicant. In addition, the applicant 
must name at least three responsible persons, preferably physi- 
cians, as references. The premises to be licensed must also be 
examined and certified on the application by the local board of 
health as suitable for the purposes. 

Upon receipt of the application properly filled out and certi- 
fied the Board writes to each of the persons named as a refer- 
ence. Upon the written endorsement of these references, a 
license is issued by vote of the Board. A license is granted for 
a term of two years, upon the expiration of which it will be 
renewed only upon the filing of a new application. Each li- 
censee holds his license conditional upon his complying with 
the prescribed regulations for lying-in hospitals, which are as 
follows : — 



1. Each licensee shall keep a record of the correct name and 
residence of every patient received. 

2. Each licensee shall keep a record of every birth and death 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 143 

under his care, and shall make prompt returns of every such birth 
and death to the proper authorities as required by law. 

3. Each licensee shall use due diligence to prevent any decep- 
tion by a patient as to her identity, and shall not receive any 
person who refuses to give the required information, unless the 
case is one of emergency. If a patient does not give the necessary 
information before the fourth day after her delivery, a licensee shall 
forthwith notify the State Board of Charity. 

4. Each licensee shall act in conformity with the Laws of the 
Commonwealth for the protection of infants. He shall not be con- 
cerned in, encourage or permit any unlawful disposition of an 
infant or any arrangement whereby an infant may be deprived of 
any of his legal rights or abandoned to become a public charge. 
This rule shall not be construed to prevent a licensee from giving 
gratuitous assistance to a patient in placing her infant in a li- 
censed boarding-house for infants, but such licensee shall at once 
report every infant so placed to the State Board of Charity. 

5. Each license shall bear a number which shall not be dupli- 
cated, except that each renewed license shall retain its original 
number. 

6. Each licensee shall plainly mark with the number of his li- 
cense every article of an infant's clothing. Upon the discharge of 
each infant from the hospital, a licensee shall mark his license 
number and the date of the discharge upon every article of the 
infant's outgoing clothing. For example: (1^2)9 ^^^ being the 
license number, 1-12-12 being the date of discharge. 

7. Each licensee shall be responsible for the observance in his 
lying-in hospital of Revised Laws, chapter 75, sections 49 and 50, 
and amendments thereto, relative to certain diseases of the eyes 
of infants. 

8. Each licensee shall be responsible for the use at every birth, 
for the prevention of ophthalmia neonatorum, of either the 1 per 
cent, solution of nitrate of silver furnished to physicians by the 
State Board of Health or some similar preparation having the 
approval of the said Board. 

9. A licensee shall send notice in writing to the State Board of 
Health, Boston, within six hours after the discharge from his 
lying-in hospital, of an infant whose eyes show or have shown the 
presence of ophthalmia neonatorum, stating the destination of said 
infant. A duplicate of the notice shall at the same time be sent 
to the State Board of Charity, Boston. 

10. Each licensee shall frame his license and post it in a con- 
spicuous place in the office of the hospital. 

11. Each license shall be the property of the State Board of 
Charity, and must be returned to the said Board upon the expira- 
tion of the term for which it is granted, or whenever it is demanded 



144 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

by the said Board after it has been revoked by vote thereof. The 
value of each license is hereby placed at $50. 

12. Any neglect or evasion of these rules or any collusion by the 
licensee with any of his patients for their subversion shall consti- 
tute sufficient cause for the revocation of his license. 

The inspection of all establishments holding a lying-in hos- 
pital license is going on regularly. The licensees are as a rule 
hospitals, physicians, or nurses, and their establishments are 
generally kept in a satisfactory condition. Statistics are ob- 
tained showing the number of confinement cases taken in each 
hospital in each year, and also the number on a certain date, 
usually the date of inspection. It is estimated that 10,000 con- 
finement cases v^ere cared for in the licensed lying-in hospitals 
during the past year. 

Tuition of Childeeis' under the Care and Control of the 

Board. 

Section 4 of chapter 44 of the Revised Lav^^s provides that, 
" For the tuition in the public schools in any city or town of a 
child betw^een the ages of five and fifteen years who shall be 
placed elsewhere than in his own home by the state board of 
charity ... or kept under the control of . . . said board in 
said city or tov^n, the commonwealth shall pay to said city or 
town . . . fifty cents for each week of '^ye days, or major part 
thereof, of attendance of every such child in the public schools. 
For the transportation to and from a public school of any child 
whose tuition is payable by the commonwealth . . . the com- 
monwealth . . . shall pay to the city or town furnishing such 
transportation, for each week of five days or major part thereof, 
an amount equal to the average amount for each child paid by 
said city or town per week for the transportation of children 
to and from school over the route by which such child is con- 
veyed." 

Under the operation of this law, bills received from 222 cities 
and towns, for the tuition and transportation of 2,537 children, 
amounting to $35,493.68, — viz., schooling, $31,874; trans- 
portation, $3,619.68, — were audited by the Board and paid 
by the Treasurer of the Commonwealth, during the last official 
year, as follows : —

Acts of 1910, Chapter 181. 

Section 1. Before making and issuing a certificate for the incor- 
poration of a charitable corporation the secretary of the commonwealth 
shall also forward such statement as is described in the preceding sec- 
tion to the state board of charity, which shall immediately make an 
iQvestigation as to the persons who have asked to be incorporated 
and as to the purposes of the incorporation, and any other material 
facts relative thereto, and shall give them a public hearing, notice of 
which shall be published onco a week for three successive weeks in 
some paper published in the county in which the corporation is to 
have its principal office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to 
be in Boston, in some Boston daily paper, the last publication to be 
at least three days before the day set for the hearing, and shall forth- 
with report to the secretary of the commonwealth aU the facts ascer- 
tained by it. If it appears to the secretary of the commonwealth from 
said report or otherwise that the probable purpose of the formation 
of the proposed corporation is to cover any illegal business, or that 
the persons asking for incorporation are not suitable persons, from 
lack of financial ability or from any other cause, he shall refuse to 
issue his certificate. If he refuses to issue his certificate, the persons 
asking to be incorporated may appeal to the superior court, which 
shall hear the case and finally determine whether or not the certificate 
of incorporation shall be issued. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

During the year ending ISTovember 30, 1912, 81 applications 
for charters have been referred by the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth to this Board, which has investigated, given hearings, 
and reported upon the 71 applications noted below. In 4 other

vi STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

During the two years and nine months which have elapsed 
since the passage of the law (March 7, 1910, to I^ovember 30, 
1912), the Board has reported npon 161 applications for char- 
terSj 121 of which were granted and 40 refused, while 15 others 
withdrew their applications. 

Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 379 of the Acts of 1909 requires the State Board of 
Charity to make annual inspection of charitable corporations 
which consent to said inspection. The text of the act is as fol- 
lows : — 

Acts of 1909, Chapter 379. 

Section 1. The state board of charity, upon the request or with the 
consent of a charitable corporation which, under the provisions of section 
fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised Laws, as amended by 
chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the year nineteen hundred 
and three, is required to make an annual report to said board, shall, at 
least once in every year, visit and inspect the institution or investigate 
the work of such corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

In the two years since the work of inspection was begun, 356 
corporations have been visited. This number, with the addition 
of 121 new societies chartered since the act of 1910, chapter 181, 
after investigation by this Board, 'makes a total of 477 whose 
methods have been studied. 

The Board is informed that certain societies are using the 
fact that they have been inspected,, in such manner as to lead 
the contributing public to infer that such inspection means 
approval. It may and in many cases does mean the exact 
opposite. Since practically every incorporated charity in the 
State has expressed itself as willing to be inspected, and all 
are being visited impartially, without regard to their standing 
in the community, it follows that while the Board does have an 
opinion in regard to each society visited, such opinion is not 
necessarily favorable. The State Board of Charity does not 
endorse charitable enterprises seeking donations from the pub- 
lic. This rule is absolute, regardless of the known standing of 
the agency in question. 



Part II.] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

The work of inspection promises to become increasingly effec- 
tive by reason of the co-operation shown by many of the chari- 
ties visited. Since the publication, a year ago, of the first report 
of inspections, a number of societies have inquired as to the 
Board's opinion of their work and have come into conference 
on methods of improving it. Others have asked for a special 
inspection with a view to securing helpful criticism from the 
Board. 

This is a gratifying indication of the increasing effectiveness 
of the Board's supervision. Already the more wide-awake so- 
cieties see the great possibilities of this supervision, not only in 
the way of safeguarding the field of charitable enterprise from 
fraud and imposture, but also in the development of better and 
constantly improving standards of work. The Board welcomes 
a close personal relationship with all these agencies. 

Two noncharitable corporations, each promoted by an indi- 
vidual, surrendered their charters as a result of inspection. 
One appears to have left the field, while the other, from present 
indications, will probably carry on business as heretofore, but 
without incorporation. 

During the past year 187 charitable corporations have been 
inspected. These may be classified as follows : — 

1. Not charitable, 9 

2. Badly managed charities, . .39 

3. Fairly well-managed charities, 41 

4. Well-managed charities, 98 



Total, 187 

Of the number visited, 48, or 25.6 per cent., are characterized 
either as noncharitable societies or badly-managed charities. 

1. !n'lne coepoeations kot charitable though possessing 
Charters eor Charitable Work. 
One of these societies purports to be a home for aged women. 
The only person interested, for there is no board of directors, 
is the self-styled '^ president," who takes old ladies to board and 
treats as her own all amounts paid by them, in ordinary business 
fashion. 



viii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Three hospitals are private business enterprises, benefiting 
chiefly the physicians connected with them. In two of these 
institutions, ward patients paying, respectively, $10 and $15 
per week are charged for professional services in addition, the 
amounts paid for board and nursing going to the corporation, 
and the physicians^ and surgeons' fees being paid to those ren- 
dering the services. As a result, the sums contributed by the 
charitable public are used to make up deficiencies in the amounts 
paid for board by ward patients, who in many cases are paying- 
less than the per capita cost, and are, in reality, the private 
patients of attending physicians. One of these institutions re- 
ceived a gift for the endoAvment of several free beds, which 
amount has been used for current expenses. Two of these hos- 
pitals are poorly equipped, dirty, and crowded. One institu- 
tion has surrendered its charter since the inspection. 

Of the &\e other societies, one gives sick benefits, one lends 
money to its members ; one is a '^ convalescent home " which 
takes both invalids and ordinary boarders, charging from $10 
to $35 per week for board only, and extra for treatment; one 
gives board in summer to women for a moderate rate, the pay- 
ments going to a person who is interested in a business enter- 
prise which is closely connected with the " charitable " feature. 
This work is more than self-supporting, but a number of benev- 
olent persons are responding to the solicitations of the indi- 
vidual interested in carrying it on. Another institution appar- 
ently confines its charitable endeavors to giving food at the door. 

2. Thiety-nii^e Badly Managed Charities. 

Seven of these institutions are homes for children. None 
of them properly investigates applicants before admission. In 
one case the matron owns the house, which is not adequately 
equipped to accommodate the children, who spend much of their 
time in a basement room without a floor. The bedrooms are 
overcrowded and the sanitary arrangements poor. The matron 
is also the collector and is away m^uch of the time, when the 
children are left in the care of a maid. 

Another home keeps its boys and girls until they are well 
grown, and the supervision over them appears to be inadequate. 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. ix 

Wlien they wish to go to the woods for recreation, they obtain 
permission from the two persons in charge of the boys' home 
and girls' home, respectively^ but the two officers do not have a 
mutual understanding, so that it is entirely possible for the 
young people to meet, away from the school, either accidentally 
or by agreement. The two persons having much of the super- 
vision are very old and so physically handicapped as to be 
unsuited to the task. The sleeping rooms are crowded and 
bathing facilities and sanitaries not good. 

The third home is well situated on a large farm owned by the 
founder, whose residence is on the premises. The boys are kept 
until they are eighteen years of age, and do all the farm work, 
receiving, however, no instruction in agriculture. The founder 
buys for both houses, the farm products are used in common, 
and there is no separation between private and institution ac- 
counts. The boys' home appears to be run partly for the pur- 
pose of working the farm by unpaid labor. The boys appear 
overworked, the sleeping quarters are overcrowded and not 
supervised at night, and there are no tubs for bathing. 

In another home having 16 children, 3 children belong to em- 
ployees, 14 have both parents living and 2 are half -orphans, ^o 
real investigation of applicants is made, but an iron-clad rule 
ordains that the price of board shall be either $1 or $1.50 per 
week, the rate depending upon whether it is paid by the mother 
or father. There is a serious question as to the need of this 
home in the community where it exists, or whether, if there is 
a need, the home is meeting it. 

The next society is controlled by one director who is well- 
meaning, but is apparently lacking in judgment and business 
ability. The sanitary conditions are bad, the persons in charge 
of the children are poorly paid, not suited to the work, and 
insufficient in number. 

Another home is in charge of persons speaking no English. 
The inspector was shown through the place by a child who had 
been forbidden to open the rooms in which the children were 
kept during the visit. 

The last home claims to give the children an industrial train- 
ing, but that part of its work is not worthy the name. The 



X STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

house is in bad repair, the dormitories are unheated and not 
properly supervised, and the sanitaries are in bad condition. 

In this category are 7 nurseries. The investigation of appli- 
cants amounts to little or nothing, the matrons who are charged 
with it being fitted, as a rule, for the domestic work only. As 
a result, children are taken when both parents are working, and 
no questions are asked in regard to the total income of the 
family. One nursery stated frankly that in a number of cases 
the mother supported the children and a loafing husband. 
There is practically no co-operation with other agencies, which 
should assist in solving such family problems. Some of them 
combine the nursery with an employment bureau, the latter 
department being patronized chiefly by the directors and others 
interested in the nursery. In many of them the crib rooms are 
overcrowded, the playrooms are not provided with toys or kin- 
dergarten materials, and the attendants are not sufliciently in- 
terested in children to be fitted for their work. 

Four hospitals belong to this class. Two could scarcely be 
classed as charity but for the fact that they pay no dividends. 
Practically all the ward cases in one institution are attended 
by their own private j)hysicians, and in the other, the house 
physician is allowed to charge for services. The tendency in 
the latter case is to exclude in a great measure the services of 
specialists, the physician in charge endeavoring to get as much 
of the paying work as possible. There is but one graduate nurse 
in this latter hospital, with a daily average of 25 patients, and 
she was engaged for duty in the operating room. The two other 
hospitals, whose patients as a rule demand very special atten- 
tion, appear to be clinics for young physicians, one frankly mak- 
ing no pretence of having a stafi of experienced practitioners, 
the other having a formidable list which is purely honorary. 
One specialist upon such list stated that he allowed his name to 
be used with the understanding that he was not to be called upon 
for services. Another, who was in charge of admissions, dele- 
gated this work to the younger physicians. 

One society is controlled by a group of at least three solici- 
tors. The officers are old and exceedingly unbusinesslike and 
have admitted two of these solicitors to their board, while the 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xi 

third one is chairman of the finance committee, and receives all 
contributions sent through the mail. Thej are thus in a posi- 
tion to handle most of the funds obtained by collection or other- 
wise. 

Another society has a purely nominal board of directors, the 
entire management falling to a single individual. The organi- 
zation is a monument to autocratic rule. It was founded about 
forty years ago by the president, who chose his own trustees, 
and there has not been an election since. The funds (from 
$3,000 to $4,000 per year) are gathered in one city by two 
collectors, the president stating that they always traveled to- 
gether, so that each might watch the other. These collectors 
are paid a total of 36 per cent, commission, the rest of the ex- 
pense amounting to 8 per cent. The funds are sent out of the 
country to a foreign society, which renders no account to the 
contributing agency, and the president has no idea how much 
actually reaches the needy cases for which aid is solicited. 

Mne societies may be characterized as old-fashioned agen- 
cies which give doles, not allowing their left hands to know 
what their right hands are doing. In some cases several officers 
of the societies have certain sums voted to them which they ex- 
pend without revealing to each other or to the society the identity 
of those aided. It is needless to add that they do not exchange 
information with other societies. 

Ten societies, 7 of them having institutions for the care of 
special classes of cases, might well be criticized for the large 
amount of money spent in proportion to the small amount of 
charitable work done. One illustration will suffice for this 
group. The society occupies premises valued at $50,000 and has 
about $250,000 in personal property. It cares for about 15 
persons at a time, and pays 15 employees, most of the'm engaged 
in work upon the farm. The amount realized from the sale of 
the farm products a little more than pays salaries and wages, 
though under proper management the farm should pay all ex- 
penses. A charitable project should care for a larger proportion 
of persons in need of charity and a correspondingly smaller 
number of employees. 



xii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

3. FoETY-oNE Faiely Well-managed Charities. 

Five homes for the aged have good buildings, but most of 
them have indifferent boards of managers, v^ho leave the super- 
vision largely to one person, usually the matron or some one 
officer. The visiting committees usually exist in name only, 
and the admissions are somewhat lax. The best portion of one 
house is occupied by the matron and her family. 

Six homes for children are placed in this class, though their 
accommodations are adequate for good physical care. 'None of 
them has an experienced person to look into applications, the 
medical examination on admission is superficial and does not 
look to the intelligent treatment of those having physical or 
mental defects, and there is no proper attempt to exercise 
supervision over children v^ho leave the institution. 

A day nursery having a good building, and ample crib rooms, 
is so lax in its admissions that it cannot be called well-managed. 
The records show that a number of mothers are at work to sup- 
plement the earnings of husbands who are unsteady workers 
because of laziness or drinking habits. Many of their cases 
clearly need the advice and assistance of other agencies if any 
reconstruction of the family situation is to be attempted, yet 
there is apparently no effort to co-operate with others in their 
behalf. 

Six hospitals for the care of the sick, having boards composed 
of excellent persons, fall short of the best standards in various 
ways. One does no laboratory work, one has no graduate nurse, 
and allows tubercular patients, both advanced and incipient, 
to visit in one another's rooms and to eat together; the super- 
intendent of another institution is old and so physically handi- 
capped that she is unable to manage the institution properly; 
the superintendents of two other institutions are absent from 
their hospitals for a large portion of the time, one of them gen- 
erally on business not connected with his hospital; one institu- 
tion is excellent in every particular except that the community's 
support does not permit it to enlarge its buildings to meet the 
apparent need. On the day of inspection every room was occu- 
pied, and a number of patients were lying on beds in the corri- 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xiii 

dors. One result of the crowded condition is that many patients 
are sent out as soon as they are able to be movedj to make room 
for those waiting to get in. 

Another institution, which takes mental cases, has a practice 
of discharging, on, an appointed day, patients who do not pay 
full rates, and appears to take no interest in the question of 
their destination, who is to accompany or meet them, or whether 
they have sufficient funds to defray the necessary expense of 
their journey. 

Two visiting nurse associations do excellent work, and would 
be ranked in the first class, except for the fact that their tuber- 
culosis cases are not well cared for. In each society this work 
is handled by a separate conamittee which works rather inde- 
pendently of the parent society, depending on the latter chiefly 
for its funds. In three agencies visited the tuberculosis work 
is not as well done under such circumstances as when the so- 
ciety itself is more directly responsible. 

Of the 20 remaining societies in this class, 10 have institu- 
tions for the care of various special cases, while the others are 
chiefly relief agencies. In general, the same criticism may be 
applied to them as to those which have been singled out as types. 
While maintaining institutions which are well-built and usually 
well adapted to the work, and choosing as a rule eminently well- 
intentioned and public-spirited persons to their boards of man- 
agement, they are not sufficiently informed on charitable prob- 
lems to administer their trusts in accordance with the best 
generally accepted methods. 

4. ISTlNETY-EIGHT WeLL-MANAGED ChARITIES. 

In this class are 16 homes for old persons, 10 homes for chil- 
dren, 4 day nurseries, 2 child-placing societies, 37 hospitals, 5 
visiting nurse associations, 7 institutions or societies giving 
various forms of assistance to the sick and convalescent, 3 relief 
societies, and 14 miscellaneous agencies, such as boys' clubs, 
summer camps, employment societies, and those furnishing 
special assistance to special classes. 

The designation " well-managed " does not mean that such 
societies are above criticism, or that they are of equal rank 



xiv STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

among tbemselves. It simply means, for tlie majority^ that they 
have good institutions and directors who are making a reasonable 
effort to give charitable aid without creating or encouraging 
pauperism. The very best societies in this class realize that the 
solution of charitable problems requires workers who are 
specially fitted, by temperament and training, to diagnose their 
cases, make plans for adequate relief, and organize all the re- 
sources at hand in order to secure such an outcome. Such steps 
involve kindly but thorough investigation, good judgment, and 
ability and willingness to co-operate with others. 

Summary. 

As a result of the inspection of 356 corporations during the 
two years since the work was begun, we find that less than one- 
half of the number may be classed as well-managed, less than 
one-third as fairly well-managed, while the badly managed and 
noncharitable together constitute nearly one-fourth of the total 
societies visited. The following table shows number and per 
cent, of each class : — 

Per Cent. 

1. Not charitable, 29 8.1 

2. Badly managed charities, 56 15.7 

3. Fairly well-managed charities, .... 109 30.6 

4. Well-managed charities, 162 45.6 



Total, 356 100.0 

In this, as in the previous report, the Board has withheld the 
names of the corporations that have been inspected. When the 
working machinery has been sufficiently extended to secure the 
inspection of all such societies within the year, it may become 
advisable to list those agencies found to be noncharitable ; as to 
all others, it is doubtful whether any benefit would accrue to the 
public from a classification by name. So many honest charitable 
enterprises, which for reasons only partially within their con- 
trol, are not in the first rank for efficiency, have shown a deter- 
mination to raise their standard of work, that there seems to be 
ample justification for the milder policy of making a general 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xv 

statement of findings without mentioning names. The Board 
stands ready to give to all charities that have been inspected 
an opinion as to their standing, with reasons therefor. 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that the Board shall receive annual reports 
of all charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation. The text of the law is as follows : — 

Revised Laws, Chapter 84, Section 14, amended by Chapter 402, 

Acts of 1903. 
A charitable corporation whose personal property is exempt from 
taxation under the provisions of clause three of section five of chapter 
twelve shall annually, on or before the first day of November, make to 
the state board of charity a written or printed report for its last 
financial year, showing its property, its receipts and expenditures, the 
whole number and the average number of its beneficiaries and such 
other information as the board may require. 

Attention is called to an act passed since the close of the last 
fiscal year, relating to the dissolution of corporations which fail 
for two successive years to report to this Board. The text of 
the law is as follows : — 

Acts of 1913, Chapter 82. 

An Act relative to reports of charitable corporations. 

Section 1. Section fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised 
Laws, as amended by chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the 
year nineteen hundred and three, is hereby further amended by adding 
at the end thereof the following : — If any corporation subject to the 
provisions of this act shall fail for two successive years to file the said 
report, the supreme judicial court, upon application by the state board 
of charity, after notice and a hearing, may decree a dissolution of the 
corporation, — so as to read as follows : — Section 14. A charitable 
corporation whose personal property is exempt from taxation under the 
provisions of clause three of section five of chapter twelve shall an- 
nually, on or before the first day of November, make to the state board 
of charity, a written or printed report for its last financial year, showing 
its property, its receipts and expenditures, the whole number and the 
avei'age number of its beneficiaries and such other information as the 
board may require. If any corporation subject to the provisions of this 



xvi STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

act shall fail for two successive years to file tlie said report, the supreme 
judicial court, upon application by the state board of charity, after 
notice and a hearing, may decree a dissolution of the corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon the first day of November 
in the year nineteen hundred and thirteen. 

Of the 791 corporations whose returns were called for during 
the last official year, 48 failed to respond; 20 of these delin- 
quents have heretofore made the return. The remaining 743 
corporations filed reports, 55 of them for the first time.
